First day at school today. After a good week end and the first real party which actually was supposed to be a barbecue. But because all the exchange students were gathered and because there was plenty of wine, the barbecue turned out to a party. Of course, the hudge flat we're living in acted as a facilitator.
I think we all needed that party to see the real face of the people and to create a real group atmosphere. We had a good time. Because most of the people are American, we made it their way. It really was a good time. I think I needed it pretty much because I wasn't feeling comfortable since I landed in South Africa. It was a hard time for me to leave France. The night before my departure I had a rough night, waking up in the middle of the night after nightmares. Up to the last moment when I arrived at the Roissy airport, I didn't wanted to go. It didn't happend to me before (for example when I moved to Canada or Spain). I had the sensation that something serious would happend. I got that feeling roughly one week before leaving. I didn't talk about that not to worry the people. But that party sounded as a reconciliation between me and South Africa I guess.
I would not put pictures of the party because there's nothing really interesting. But on sunday, I made a couple of pictures. You'll see the pinguins from the Boulder National Parc which is located in Simon's Town (on the other side of the Cape). And some pictures of the Table Moutain and the 12 apolsters (taken from my balcony) where you can see the clouds sliding down the edge, like waterfalls. It's an amazing landscape.
