On Day 3, we experienced the history of slavery in South Africa and the significant contributions of slavery to the character of Cape Town and its people. Our guide was Lucy Campbell, a historian and activist, who took us on a tour of the Company Gardens and the Slave Lodge. Then we took the cable car to the top of Table Mountain, where the beautiful, clear weather made it possible to see the entire Cape Peninsula. On Day 4, we enjoyed a lively and energizing township worship experience at Sivuyile National Baptist Church, followed by a delicious lunch at Vernon's mother's house, prepared by his mother, sister, and sister-in-law. In the afternoon, one group of students headed to the beach at Camp's Bay, and another group went shopping at the Waterfront. Rev. Rose joined us in the evening and set out instructions for the Public Transportation Exercise on Monday - students are divided into 5 teams with different places to visit in Cape Town - a bit like the Amazing Race, Cape Town!
