I was watching the Mandela concert just now and Mafikizolo came on and performed several songs. I had no idea they were gonna be there! I was singing along and crying and grinning and I don't know what not. They played NdiHamba Nawe! I miss South Africa sooooo much sometimes, and all I want to do is go back and spend time with the beautiful people I got to know there. I miss my host family. Mama Phumzi and little Lindo...everyone! I almost never cry, but...wow.

I want to go back...

I'm sorry you miss SA. It must have been an absolutely amazing experience. How long were you there for ?

I was only there for little more than a week, but they were the best days of my life without anything getting even close. I know it seems I were there for a lot longer, but I didn't have to be. Our (me and Anne Kari's) host family made us feel like we were part of the family in just 3-4 days time. I seriously feel like I have a second family down there.

I know what you mean..I miss Africa so much it hurts all over me. Not SA (after all I was only there for a week or so, not really enough to fall completely in love) but Africa as a whole. God...I wish there was some way I could be there instead of here right now.

I am not sure what I miss the most...my kids (ie the ppl I was teaching), my colleagues or the ppl I lived with. I just want to go back.
