South Africa

THE highlight of Rahil's trip to South Africa was petting lion cubs at a park outside of Johannesburg, but Rahil also purports to have enjoyed finding snails in Moreson's Farm in Franschhoek, watching southern right whales in Hermanus, seeing a colony of indigenous penguins in Simons Town, visiting the Cape Town aquarium, trying to balance a lemon on his head, seeing ostriches on the beach, taunting the ocean, searching for shells, and seeing where Gandhi was jailed.
