Blog 8: Martha & Emma
Despite lack of sleep (thanks to the leaders who thought it'd be hilarious to wave a McDonald's sign and torch around the room as we went to sleep) morale was high today.
This morning we finally finished the playground at Mwandika which the kids are already enjoying. The toilet blocks in manyenje are also on their way to being finished and look fantastic.
After another one of Ida's infamous lunches we haggled with some local traders who were selling homemade arts and crafts, most of us spending half the kwacha we arrived with. In true TGS style we could not resist challenging the local ladies to a netball match. However, in true Malawian style, the rules were a little different which resulted in an intense and interesting game - local women dominating but TGS putting up a good fight.
Today we came across our first 100% certain non-rabied dog - a gorgeous golden lab called Shula, which added even more excitement to the day.
We're now preparing for bed at 730 as we have the joy of a 430 wake up call...you'll find out why tomorrow.
Lots of love,
Team Malawi X
