It's now monday after work on the second week of building. We have two sites where we are extending existing buildings, the walls are stone and clay mud, taken directly from the earth right next to the house so we are a model of resourcfulness. The only set back is the water, being the end of the dry season they are in very short supply, and the watering holes are a fair old trek to get too. Also there is not a scerik of natural flat ground!
The people here are hopelessly friendly and welcoming. we are getting to know our home partners very well, and spent the last friday afternoon dancing on the site. The food is amazing, and the scenery pushes the boundaries of my vocabulary.
Our weekend was spent l looking around different towns, Visiting a buddhist monastary and then a small, 3 class, elementary school, learning/teaching with the kids and then playing with puppets of auzzie animals that mum had bought for me, They were quite a hit!
There are plenty of photos to go up but for the time being i only have shots
taken from the video camera, they will do for now.
Hope you all are well
