Daniel's Trip to South Africa

Day 7

Today wasn't so much about adventure, but experiencing the historical and cultural side of South Africa. We began our day by traveling to a cave where an austrolopithicus africanus was found. It is believed that this creature was one of our early ancestors. After the caving experience, we met with Dr. Collin Mentor. He taught us about the history of man and how Africa is the craddle of human kind. After our lecture, we went to an open market to buy African goods. I did not like the market that much because the shop owners were overly persistent and I felt obligated to buy something. After the market we went to Ledesi, a culture theme exhibit. While there I ate an African grub, it was so weird. We also had a African feast with ostrich and crocodile. Overal it was an awesome day. Good Night.
