Hey there! I am Kitty, the new intern at Kurus English. I am so excited to be in the beautiful city of Cape Town, which I have grown to love more every day! And I must say, my internship at Kurus has made this experience even better. The atmosphere here is just great! My first week has been amazing and I am glad to say that I will be here for the next 5 months!
Today we visited artist John Bauer at the Montebello Design Centre in beautiful Newlands. John showed us some of his art and explained some of his processes. We also got the chance to make our own bowls with explosions! #explosions #johnbauer #montebello #languageexcursion

Time to say: till we meet again, dear Fejo group, Sereina and Tamara! It was a pleasure having you here! And thanks for the video shoot this week which we celebrated with some pizza slices!!! #EFLinSA
I guess this is where my adventure really ends. Thank you guys soooo much for everything that you have done for and with me. It has been a crazy ride! You have made me enjoy Cape Town even more than I already would have. Thanks for all the advice, tips, wacky thoughts and crazy talk we've had over the past months. I hope you'll remember me because I sure will remember you guys! I love you all and I will miss you! Until we meet again.
P.S. It's cold...

We made and ate Cape Malay food today on our language excursion! Our guide Sabelo shared some of the history of the Bo-Kaap area with us and we made our own samoosas with the guidance of our lovely host Gamidah Jacobs. We also had chili bites, lentil curry with sambal, and koesisters. #capemalaycuisine #bokaap #lekkakombuis #traditionalfood
