Africa: Day Six
Rundu Travel Blog› entry 13 of 25 › view all entries
Today was pretty relaxed. We got up and had breakfast, and waited around for someone to bring the buckie back so we could go to the College of Education (where they train teachers). One of the volunteers is out of town, and left us the keys to her house so that we could have warm showers instead of the cold ones that we would have to take out in the village. Soooo nice!! Then back to the village to pick up the Oneil family. We went to the local school and read with some of the students there, which was a very cool experience. Then back to Kaisosi to get ready for the project. We just played games with the kids for awhile, then they heard a story, and then they got fed some pap, which is a really thick porridge made from maize that you eat with some kind of relish, and they get fish also. There are about 200 orphans that come to this gathering twice a week. Then we went back to our house and cooked chicken over an open fire for our dinner. It's still pretty early, but we're getting ready for bed. Since the sun sets early, and you can't do much in the dark, we just tend to go to bed early, but we're usually up early in the morning.
