TechWomen and Lions in Johannesburg, South Africa

IMG_6663

I arrived in Johannesburg, South Africa, this morning.  I will spend the next week as part of the TechWomen Delegation – with senior technical mentors from the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley, Emerging Leaders from many of the 16 program countries in the Middle East and Africa, IIE staff, and staff from the US State Department, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Our first official meeting is tomorrow, so today a small group of us shopped at Nelson Mandela Square, then went to the Lion Park to see impressive wildlife, and pet some rowdy lion cubs.  A good start to an exciting adventure!
