Student Photo Gallery: South Africa

As Archbishop Desmond Tutu described to the shipboard community, South Africa is one of the most beautiful yet unequal countries in the world.  From the top of Table Mountain to the tip of the Cape of Good Hope, from Robben Island to the Krueger National Park, from the beauty of the Wine Country to the poverty of the Townships, students documented every aspect of this country.  These are just a few of the thousands of pictures taken by the shipboard community.
