One of the (many) benefits of participation in a global exchange program is getting to explore a new country. Over the weekend, several of us went hiking in the highest mountain range in Southern Africa, the Drakensberg. The topography and landscape was like nothing I’ve seen before.
We also took a tour to see the rock paintings of the Bushman people that existed in the Drakensberg approximately 40,000 to 100,000 years ago.
Another highlight of our hike included seeing some of the local animals, including elan, monkeys and a family of baboons.
