Summer Snapshots: Sasolburg, South Africa

I'm nearing the end of my summer snapshots series. Sasolburg was my second to last stop in South Africa. Here, I got to live with twins just a couple of years older than me. I saw their university, watched their field hockey game, went rafting, and just generally hung out. English was their second language, so they were really nervous to talk. I did a lot of listening in Afrikaans or filling in the blanks for a word they forgot the name of. Their vocabularies were impressive though. University classes are in English, so they knew plenty of words that surprised me. I enjoyed being with my peers for that week and a half.

We went to a zoo and I loved the colors of these birds.

Her school was also a mini nature reserve that had all kinds of antelope... and monkeys!

We drove out to a flea market and I watched these men stuff two live sheep into the trunk of that car.

We went on another game drive at a nature reserve in her town.

We went to a lion farm and I got to pet this cutie!

The dogs and lions were friends!
