As we move on from Makongeni we are all reflecting back on the great times we have had over such a short space of time. Our imaculately constructed quarter-finished floor could have been tainted by no other than our leader Muse who absent-mindedly tiptoes over it not so like a delicate mosquito but more so an elephant! Following this blip, He’s turned out to be a fantastic leader proving this even more so by winning the ‘Best Legs’ award at our L.E.A.P fancy dress party coming dressed as an ‘African man’. Other categories included Most original for which Emma won dressed as a Pineapple!
Every body has got whole-heartedly stuck into the village projects and the Kenyan way of life ranging from building gickos (check spelling) which are fuel efficient stoves for the villagers, to teaching English and ICT and cooking maandazis on the traditional 3 stone cookers. Our biggest achievement has to be organising (successfully) sports day for 600+ children followed by ‘Kenyas got talent’ hosted by our very owen Chris, a.k.a Chris ‘Cowell’
Knackered after a hard weeks work, we were able to snorkel or SCUBA dive which ‘JOLLY’ aka jo and holly found an incredible highlight of the trip so far. To top off our amazing day in the clearest sea and of the beach of the whitest sand, we danced the night away at the infamous Forty Thieves! Need we say more…
We are very much looking forward to our next adventures at Mwulaganje elephant sanctuary although we have made good friends with the local villagers and will be sad to leave. Until next time, Enjoy the British rain and wish us luck!
On behalf of everyone miss you all…a bit x
