Bruna, who came to Cape Town, with her husband, Guilherme, tells us about her amazing visit to Cape Town and ELC. Here's a sneak peek: "What has been your best memory in Cape Town so far? (a day, or an event, or a weekend…?) I did different things in Cape Town during that time that I have never done before like jumping from the bridge in a bungy jump, hiking Lions Head, kayaking on a river and many others. But my new friends are the best part of that time. Friends from different countries and different cultures. I hope to see them again and who knows visit their countries." It's always about the people!Read more Student Stories | Bruna from Brazil
