    As I start to open the door, bang! I end up hitting another door. I thought to myself “what has she gotten us into?” Two adults, two teenagers, and a dog cramped in a small motel room for the weekend. This is how my trip to Tahoe started, pretty good so far right? Ha, not really! My family and...

    Sitting on the floor inside the mud hut, there were only leftover beans and a piece of bread for me to eat. There was no nice bed, or even a bath; only a mattress with a quilt and the hopes of a bucket bath in the next few days. The two people who could speak fluent English had such heavy Zulu...
