Sunrise in Joburg
We took a plane from Cape Town to Johannesburg, since it is much faster than if we were to take a tour bus or something. We went to the Gold Reef City Theme Park, since we haven't been to an amusement park since we left Orlando. Besides, we love them anyway and we don't really get the chance to go back home, because my parents can't go on rides. We also got a 4D theatre experience! It was a great way of having fun and the lines to get on the rides weren't long, so we loved that!
Then, the next day we went to the Apartheid Museum. It was so heartbreaking to learn all about the history and see different pictures, etc.

We also really wanted to visit Kruger National Park, but it was way too far- about 6 1/2 hours by car. (We can't even drive here anyway and we don't have enough time sadly). But the park is basically like an African safari, where we get to see real African wildlife (elephants, lions, buffalos, etc). I think it would be a great experience, but maybe the next time we come here we'll get to go or something?
One thing to look forward to now is that we're finally going back to our country, where we will get to see our family members again after so long!
