After wrapping up her television, radio and magazine duties, Oprah leaves on a quick weekend trip...to South Africa! Her destination may be halfway around the world, but this three-day trip is for a very worthy cause.
Oprah is putting the finishing touches on the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls, which is set to open in South Africa in January 2007. She's also working on a book about the experience, which will feature photos of the students and the story of the building.
During her trip, Oprah interviews a hundred potential students for her school. Then, she hops back on a plane and makes it back to Chicago in time to start taping shows all over again.
