Thursday September 13
Another day, another day of working on the lesson.
Yesterday (the whole morning) I couldn't work because there was no electricity. Tomorrow I was going to give my first lesson about bandages (first aid). When we (at the project) were finished, Antie Martine took us to a bar called 'Chez Franco'. We waited there for Antie Myliam and Eve. They threated us on 'Brochetten en Igitoki'. It was very good!
Eve and me decided to come back 1 day! After the food was finished we returned home to watch a movie and to prepare for tomorrow.
Altough from the last part didn't happen a lot untill the evening.
Like always we ended with a skype and a sleep!
Friday September 14
Today is the day I ... TEACH!
I needed to be there early in case there was something wrong (last minute changes).
I was at the project at +/- 07:45 am. When I arrived the bandages we looked for weren't there yet. A student quickly went to the "pharmacy" to pick them up. When everybody arrived at school and the bandages were there I could start the lesson. Instead of 5 bandages and 5 triangular bandages. I only had 2 and 3. Normally I would have divided them into 5 groups for the practical part of the lesson, but instead of that I let them come to the front of the class to show the other students what they learned. My lesson went good but slow because of the many translations into kinyarwanda (thanks to Eric).
After the first aid lesson we went to play volleybal with the whole class.
When Eve was finished she called me to aks where I was. She asked me if I was still playing volleyball and where we could meet. A while later she arrived at the terrain with Myliam. Soon after that we stopped and headed back to the home of Myliam. She had cooked for us (aloco's, isambazas and meat + saus).
It was on a special demand of myself. After the delicious meal we went to kivu lake to 'swim'. But when we arrived at the lake, it started to rain. It couldn't stop us and we putted on our swimsuit. 5 minutes later we were diving from the pier. It was very fun, we (a group locals) were challenging eachother to do the best dives! Too bad I had to stop because of a 'cramp' in my calf. Immidiatly some youngsters helped me.
That night we slept like roses!
