I recently returned home from 20 weeks in Cape Town. And Magister requested to write something. I had no idea what to expect upon arriving but was comforted knowing that Magister had set up living and work arrangements. While it was quite shocking at first, Cape Town felt like home after two weeks.  Most exciting and fun 20 weeks of my life. And I learned a lot at my internship in venture capital as well. If you want to do something off the beaten path, pick Cape Town. I can’t imagine a type of person that wouldn’t fall in love with the city quickly. The people I met and the contacts I made were all incredible. Can’t imagine a better place and way to spend a semester or summer or however much time you have to spend. The more the better.  Cheers and good luck.
