My roommates and I took a trip to Robben Island this week. It was very emotional for me, I am still trying to gather my thoughts and will post photos soon.

For those who don’t know, Robben Island (it is an actual island that takes about 30 minutes to get to by ferry) is where Nelson Mandela and other anti-apartheid leaders were held as political prisoners (eighteen of President Mandela’s twenty-seven years in prison were spent on this island in a tiny cell).

Living in Africa is monumental.
