VERMONTERS IN SOUTH AFRICA!!!!!!!!
Totally by coincidence, the volunteers last year met an American family at the recycling center. This family is not only AMERICAN they are from VERMONT!!! It was towards the end of their year, so they had dinner together once but planned to keep the relationship alive. We made that happen this past Monday. Susie and Mike (and their kids Emma, Alex and Sam) invited us to their home in Kloof. Mike is a geologist and was relocated to Africa last year. We had an awesome dinner and got to know each other a bit better. It was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO nice to spend time with Americans and talk about our shared experiences here in South Africa. Dinner at their house was definitely a highlight of my time here so far. I can't wait to spend more time with them again soon!
