My time in Cape Town was just amazing. Lucie and Julian helped me find a very interesting and great internship in such a short time and within two weeks I arrived in Cape Town and started working.

They helped me with everything I needed, they care so much about their interns well being and make it pretty easy to settle in into a new environment.

Right from the beginning it felt like having friends you could always contact no matter what the issue is. The social events on Saturdays are always fun and a nice way to get in touch with the other interns. Thanks so much for all your effort and this amazing experience!
