Blog post 11: by Lauryn d & Robyn
After an interesting and hilarious night of sleep talking from Hannah, we began our usual morning routine. Half of us to Mwandika to finish painting, cement mixing, carrying rocks for the sandbanks and hoeing (we are always hoeing!). The other half stayed in manyenje to lime the toilet block, paint educational boards and sort out donations for Joshua - most of our suitcases would have halved in size.
After lunch, the groups switched sites. Those of us remaining in manyenje got the opportunity to make some bricks after a long, scenic walk along the river bank. Brick making involves standing barefoot in mid, getting covered in the mud and attempting to pack it into wooden moulds like a sandcastle (we knew those beach trips would come in useful somewhere!).
We also received another visit from Winnie (the Joshua founder) and her son David, who were not afraid to get stuck in.
Today has been particularly hot and sunny so we are ready to get a good nights sleep for our final day in manyenje!
P.s we are all really missing you back in the UK!
