Part One: A day in the life of a South African Abby:
Twas the day before this, and all through the night,
an Abby was stirring, sleep put up a fight.
When at 7 o clock, a Patty came knocking,
she requested her room key, though neither felt like talking.
Then much to that aforementioned Abby's dismay,
sleep had entirely fleeted away.
So up she did rise and to the kitchen she went.
She made herself some breakfast feeling tired and spent.
She had plans for the morning and knew she much go,
for the street kids of Africa needed her so.
She served food and smiles to the folks there in town,
feeling fulfilled and happy for spreading hope all around.
Next to a cafe with friends she settled down, ate, and talked.
Then on a rainy trip back to campus they all went and walked.
Happy because her new pashmina kept her dry
while the rain here was falling straight down from the sky.
Next this dear Abby watched a movie with Pat.
Then met for a house warming party to chat.
All of the girls in the building were so crazy and funny,
it didn't seem bad that outside was not sunny.
After the dorm warning party was through,
Abby went to the bars with a friend here or 2.
They had so much fun, until way too late in the night.
Staying awake for this sleepy Abby was indeed quite a fight.
Then at last she found her way back to bed.
Good night dear South Africa was the day's last words said.
bahahaha. I actually had no intention of writing that all in rhyme, but hopefully it was enjoyable. I suppose that does about sum up my day though. ha.
Part 2: Question and Answer time with Linda & Abby Rich.
My mother wrote me an email with a bunch of questions about South Africa. I'll answer them here so that you all can know too.
