Hello everyone! We woke up to our usual porridge routine this morning, before embarking on an interesting stretching routine by doctor Becca, to prepare for the day ahead. The second half of the group visited the feeding centre this morning, playing games with the children and serving them their meal. It was a very moving experience for all of us - and even Tom had a child on his hip at one point. Meanwhile the rest of the group were moving full speed ahead on the project and finished plastering the last wall in the new classroom that we have been working on. When half of the team returned we regrouped for lunch (beans and rice are still going strong! ). For the final part of the day we finished protected all of the trees that we'd planted with a circle of bricks, making a blackboard for the 2014 classroom and finishing the last painting jobs. We started to smooth the wall that we plastered but the water and paintbrushes became weapons for a large water fight - so the wall did not get much smoothing. We enjoyed our dinner of lentils and rice with our friend Flora from the village and her two children - we are now sitting together all playing cards and all looking forward to a good night's sleep.
Lots of love Anna B, Milana and Daisy.
P.S. Happy Birthday to Jade's and Rachel's Dads
