  • I believe the most wonderful and funny trip I have ever experience took place in the summer of 2007. My club basketball team, ‘Forest Park Fury’ took a trip to Bolling Brook, Illinois, a little town located in the suburbs of Chicago to participate in the North America Youth Sports National...

  •   “Howzit! Welcome to Sud Africa!” That was the first thing I heard stepping off the 18 hour  flight from Washington D.C. It was all so new and exciting, different smells, a new language, a completely new atmosphere, pretty much a new everything. This was only my second time in South Africa in...
