Sugar was an amazing guide!

Sugar was an amazing guide! I am so thankful to have participated in the Langa Township tour. The art center was incredible and it was fun to meet the artists. Sugar is absolutely a part of this community and made us feel comfortable the whole time. We got to see inside several types of homes in the Langa Township which is thanks to the relationships that Sugar has in the community. It was an eye opening experience and a humbling one, but Sugar made me feel welcome the whole time :)

Do not miss this!

I thought about skipping this but thank God I didn't. You get to see a more authentic side of the city and meet the locals in a more "real" experience. I've met tons of the local kids who were super excited to see us and had an awesome meal in the homes of of the locals. Getting to see people live with not much was a very humbling experience that I'm glad that I got to partake in. 100% do this!
