OW Leadership Academy in South Africa~Aired on ABC Last Night to LOADS of TEARS~~

Dscf1993Last night was the premiere of a television show I just spent months in Africa working on, Building a Dream: The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy.  Talk about an awe-inspiring hour of television.  Hell, even though I saw most of it unfold, I was bawling during half the show.  The little girls over there are truly special kids and are the future of an already amazing country, South Africa.  I fell head over heels in love with this beautiful country while I was there (especially all of her glorious sunsets) and I cannot wait to go back (wanna drive to Mozambique with a pal, this time).  I got to see quite a bit of the country (driving from JBG to Durban) and everywhere you look, it's just one breathtaking vista after another. Don't let the media fool you--South Africa is a gem and should be visited with great frequency~Plus, I had the BEST mojito at the Westcliff Hotel that I do believe I've ever had (outside of the one I drank with great speed at Casa Iguana on Little Corn Island, Nicaragua).
