Me and some of the foster children.
Shaker isn't a foster child but he always seems to be around and as you can see loves having his photo taken.
Hi everyone just thought I'd publish a little update for you all.
Things are great here in Bangalore and I'm enjoying it very much. Been too busy to go away at weekends but have plans for the next 3 weekends so things should be a little more interesting for you all.
Have got very attached to the foster children and for the last 3 weeks we have had DVD nights on Saturday which eveyone enjoys very much, so much so that I feel guilty about going away, but the school holidays have started so it's okay for us to shift the night to mid-week so they won't miss out.
Thought I would also send you some photos of where I work and of the masks the children made last week. I had to plan an activity for 80 children ranging from 3 years to 6 years so carnival masks it was and they all looked amazing as you can see from the photos.
The area I live in has a huge contrast of rich and poor, one photo was taken from the balcony of the apartment in which I live. This shack is about 3m x
The ACCESS building.
This is where I work, this is the office and the foster children live in 2 rooms upstairs. To the left there is a covered area where the nursey children have their lessons.
3m (roughly 9ft x 9ft), but a whole family live in it along with the family of huge rats that we see running in and out of their holes, we saw one the other day and from nose to tip of tail it must have been almost 80cm long, it was MAHOSIVE
Oh well guys that's almost it for now, but I wanted to introduce you to Timmy's new friend, Marvin. Marvin came all the way from England, pack in teabags, how cute. They have now become the best of friends hahahahaha.
lots of love Babe, Timmy and Marvin xxxxxxx
