  • Jambo, Molo, Bawoni and Goeie More. What an exciting and unique continent Africa is. We spent the afternoon finding out facts, eating banana chips and dancing like zulu tribesmen. We found out where Africa was on our class globe. How hot it is in places and even saw how big the Sahara Desert is. Tomorrow is our last flying visit - and it will be flying as we are visiting two continents - North and South America. We're starting to get pretty exhausted having travelled right around our planet Earth in five days.
