Presents for the Zanzibari children Dec 22, 2008
We had a quite interesting/funny experience with the cute children in Jambiani.We came back after our almost daily stroll to the the water at low tide followed by the children with whom we were singing the famous children's song "Head shoulders knees and toes.....". By the way it was a good way to teach each other the languages Swahili/English):)

One of the boys asked me:" Do you have penschool?" I went to fetch one pen and in the course of no time they started to fight about this pen.I immediately stopped the fight and took back the pen explaining them that they won't get it when fighting:):)

If I just knew this before leaving Denmark, I would have bought 100 pens in all colours as presents for the children:):)SO EVERYONE GOING TO JAMBIANI PLS BRING A LOT OF PENCILS AND SCHOOL-BALL PENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you have a "penschool"????
