After sitting around the tree which was pretty epic and the girls opening their presents from each other it was time to go spread the love to the children in the surrounding villages and give the toys we had bought the previous day out like we were santa. After parading through the streets in the back of utes like we were special lead by a a police escort it felt wierd almost uncomfortable rocking up to give these kids the presents which the day b4 felt good buying with all good intentions. It just felt wierd as a group of rich gringos rocking up to give out presents to the "needy" well who we thought were. Afterwards i just thought of all the smiling kids and focused on the good intentions and had another beer in the park with some of my new found family because we managed to loose the others as our hunger diverted a select few off path and into macdonlds. The rest of the day was spent chilling out with the crew at the black cat

i know how you feel about the akward bit... but always remeber that the kids are never going to forget what you did for them.. a hopefully change lives in the procces, setting there dreams and ambitions to the moon. Even changing one ife is worth it.
