Its always been a wish of mine to travel, but i have seemed to have never had the time or the funds to do so, well, this time around, unlike last year University Sport South Africa (USSA) Chess tournament was held at the University of Fort Hare in Alice. If you did not know, last year it was held at the University of the Western Cape, which was a bummer because walking across the road is not travelling.

Back to Alice, I do not know if Alice is a town or a village, I’ll say its a town, but at first glance… Alice is terrible I would not go there even if you paid me, but on my second day there I got internet connection, and bada bing bada boom, Alice is not so bad, and it was free. but there was a catch, file hosting websites were blocked… which means Alice was in my bad book again…. but something about that town, the people were just too awesome.

I have never met more friendly strangers, first it was a girl.. offered to share her umbrella with me as small as it was which was so sweet, then the following day I was walking from the local shops a guy also offered to share his umbrella with me, but we offered the umbrella to a lady who was headed to town, but the general population seems friendly…. and i had a good time
