"My 3 month home"
I was a part of a study abroad program that included 13 nursing students from the College of St. Benedict who studied at the University of Port Elizabeth . We lived in Langerry Holiday Flats in Humewood and learned to love this area. The view from our flat window was of the ocean and at night I often fell asleep to the sound of waves. Although most South Africans would disagree with me when I say Port Elizabeth is a great place to be, I cherished my time there and considered it home.
