South Africa

July 28 through August 10th Morgan was in South Africa with her dad, Crystal, and Doug.  They flew to Washington, D.C. and then an 18 hour flight to Johannesburg, South Africa. Most of the time was spent out in blinds hunting with a bow.  Morgan shot three animals...two warthogs and one impala!  She told me that she loved the food they ate which included many different types of wild game and lots of onions.

Morgan enjoyed hearing about the riots of 1976 concerning Apartheid, visiting the home of Nelson Mandela, and learning about other South African history.  It was the middle of winter there and Morgan said it was strange to see the moon in the "wrong" part of the sky and the crescent on the "wrong" side of the moon since they were in a different hemisphere.
