Charmed, I’m sure

Third time is a charm.

I booked my tickets yesterday for my trip to South Africa and Botswana next month.

What’s one of the best perks of being a graduate student? Conferences! I know, I know. Conferences get a bad wrap sometimes, but I try to double down on my conference time. Fall semester I got to see Philadelphia for the first time and was blown away.

So, in this same vien-I’m presenting at a conference in Botswana and taking time to visit South Africa while I’m already on that side. The first time I went to South Africa was in 2013 and only for a week.  The trip was nine days but a good chunk was traveling.  We crammed a lot in during those nine days. Last year, I did an internship at NMMU in Port Elizabeth.   I felt lucky each day I was there.  Now, I’m going back!  I’ll be there for almost a month.  I’ll fly into Johannesburg and explore the city until the middle of the month when I go to Gaborone for the conference.  After the conference I’ll go to Port Elizabeth for a week.  When I leave PE I’ll fly to Johannesburg and back to the US.
