South Africans in Missouri

We had the privilege of hosting a young man from South Africa at our house over the past several days, as part of a Group Study Exchange through the my Rotary Club. We did our best to show him a great time, though we kept him from the Power & Light District the other night. If you're interested in seeing how a group of South Africans (and one from Mozambique) experience Northwestern Missouri over the next couple weeks, they have created their own blog.

It's been tremendous fun to spend time with someone who grew up with bush babies and warthogs in his house.

It certainly was fun hanging out with Yssel. Some of those stories were crazy and he was so nonchalant about telling them. I'll have to have a brandy and coke tomorrow in honor of him.
