Application number 2 is underway - to make the acceptance official I have to fill out a Wits "occasional studies" application and fax it over to them. I've been told this is basically a formality - nonetheless I'll have to retract the title of my first entry :) Part of the application is deciding what classes I want to take ... much to choose from so I'll be meeting with Prof. Klug sometime next week to figure all that out.

I met the other student that is going with me this week. Her name is Kathryn and she seems great. I think we'll have a really good time there together. We both agreed that we had no idea how to pack for this trip, 6 months means I'll need most of the stuff I have - at least clothing wise - and i'll need linens and some electronics and some things that remind me of home ... well looks like I'll be paying the fee for having luggage that is over the approved weight ...

I'm looking at going on safari over the spring break while I'm there. There's a decently priced one at Krueger Park ... There is a you tube video called "Battle at Krueger" and it's from a safari there. Look it up if you have time it's AMAZING! Well that's all for tonight.
