Say more about “volmoed.” How does one pronounce it? What are the origins of this word? Is it a concept in South Africa or of a native language?

Comment on Safari!!! by Ann Bjorklund http://utsglobaltrips.com/2013/01/20/safari/#comment-1237 Mon, 21 Jan 2013 02:06:07 +0000 http://utsglobaltrips.com/?p=1130#comment-1237 How challenging to see beauty all around but yet be in the midst of turmoil among people. It seems to be common among all of humanity. How do we become agents of change and help empower others to to do the same? How do we bring people to common ground? This is part of what is so challenging and thought-provoking about UTS Global Justice Trips! My trip was life-changing and I know that it is for others, too!

Thank you, Chris Smith, and all who do so much to arrange these trips and make them possible!!

Your trip reminds me so much of the safari I took with my brother 30+ years ago in Kenya! We stayed in a “hotel” room with mosoquito netting around our beds–it was fabulous!! We continue our prayers for you all and pray for your safe return!! Blessings as you enjoy your remaining time in South Africa The Giffens–Sarah & Wally

Unbelievable! I feel sad to think you’re leaving Capetown for the last time which means it won’t be long before you’ll head home. I’ve so enjoyed hearing about your experiences on this trip. You’ll all be in my thoughts and prayers for a successful and safe safari and a safe trip home.
