Wow. Choosing to come to SA has got to be one of the best decisions ever… It’s gorgeous and the people are really friendly and helpful. Despite sticking out to the extreme, I feel very comfortable. It will take a while to get used to everyone staring at me but I find smiling back works well. I really wasn’t expecting there to be so few white students but really I’ve only met one who wasn’t an exchange student. Another thing that surprised me was the accent of white people here; I was expecting it to sound similar to a Dutch accent but it is identical to Australian which is awesome. So needless to say i’m on the look out for a hot faux Aussie. Alsoi everything is so cheap here; nice clothes and shoes are walmart or sirens prices. Even the more expensive stores are like sale prices at home. Last thing, coolest experience so far… cream soda flavoured milk… didn’t beat banana milk to go but worth a try.
