Last weekend we enjoyed an informal football match with some local children along with the Fieldbase team who were visiting. They gave us some laughs with Sabrina’s dramatic attempt to avoid falling in a large cow pat and Jed shocked us all with his English legs – was he actually wearing a great pair of milk bottle leggings?!
On our first day off we packed out bags with swimwear, sunscreen and lollipops and headed to a nearby (in Bruce's estimation) waterfall. We practiced our river crossing technique, which measured at a steady pace of one group every 30mins so maybe more practice maybe needed!
We utilised an afternoon off by talking and learning about poverty and the Millennium Development Goals. It sparked an interesting discussion and led to a heated debate. The Project Managers also taught us some new games as an alternative to Mafia - we thoroughly enjoyed climbing through plastic bags and chasing little pieces of paper with our eyes closed.
Our next blog will be upon arrival at Fieldbase, so until then... Deacachimba!
