My Trip to South Africa
I'm going to South Africa with Kyla over Mardi Gras Break, and I am extremely excited, especially because we are in the midst of studying African literature. Kyla's dad went to college in South Africa but actually grew up in Zimbabwe, so I'm hoping to learn about the culture in both places from him. Hopefully I'll be able to learn enough from Mr. Bernberg and my surroundings to write a blog post comparing the African culture of the Igbo tribe, the culture of tribes in Zimbabwe, and the culture in South Africa. I'm sure their will be stark differences between the different places, especially because of Apartheid. It will also be interesting to see how the different societies have evolved over the years under the pressure of westernization.
