Fried egg sandwiches for breakfast were the highlight of our morning, a nice break from porridge, with Charlotte managing to deep fry an egg shell. This morning we managed to finish planting the trees around the village, a staggering total of over 450 trees which will make a massive difference to the village, not only structure for the ground but also nutrition for the locals. We also completed the sign that will go up on the finished classroom, decorated with both team 1 and 2s handprints, not forgetting Jack, Emily, Ivy, Docas and Stevie, who we couldn't do this project without. This afternoon everyone was given the opportunity of home visits where we visited two local families, allowing us to gain insight to their culture and way of life. It was a particularly eye-opening and emotional experience, making everyone appreciate how lucky we are but also appreciating the uplifting resilience of the locals. Tonight we're enjoying an aubergine and sweet potato curry, practically fine dining! We'll be getting an early night to recover from the hard work done today.
Night from Malawi from Bex, Dini and Charlotte.
P.S. We're all thinking of you Alex and you're definitely here in spirit (we put your handprint in the sign as you're part of team 2 with us :))
