Lumela from Lesotho!
Wittenberg University has built a relationship with the people of the African kingdom of Lesotho, thanks to the leadership and expertise of Professor of History Scott Rosenberg, who served in the Peace Corps in Lesotho before joining the university's faculty.
we arrived safe and sound in Johannesburg and are now on our way to Lesotho!
Dearest friends, Hello! Guess what?! We made it! So, let's start from the very beginning... the very best place to start :)
Today we met the king of Lesotho. I never thought that I would ever be able to say that I have met a king, but now I can. We all walked in to the room and sat down into the big black chairs that were lined around the tables.
As the end of our time here becomes more near, it is becoming clear that there is a struggle to keep our minds and hearts in the present. There is talk of what horribly greasy and calorie-filled food we will eat first when we reach home.
Parents, friends, and fellow blog readers,
Our day began with breakfast at 8:00 am and then we headed to the Leratong Community Center to continue working on creating a new shade garden.
Today we started our first full day here in Roma. We are helping build a shade garden at the Leartong Community Center. We started this process today by filling in this hole with dirt and cow manure.
