The internet in my dorm has been down for the past 4 or 5 days and I have not been able to post anything up here. Once we get internet back fully I will post more about Orientation Week, this past weekend along with some pictures. O-Week ended Friday night with a street party with a band and then some crazy DJ's. House Music is HUGE here and its all they played at the party. Saturday morning we went on a tour of some of Grahamstown's Townships which are the settlements built by the government under Aparteid for people other than the whites. They are extremely poor areas. Saturday evening we went out to dinner with some of our professors as well as people from the International Office. Today a few of the kids I came to South Africa with went to a place called Kenton-On-Sea, a small seaside holiday resort about an hour from here situated on the Indian Ocean. Tomorrow starts the first day of classes. Bye for now.
