Thursday, by Haresh and Megan

Hi Englanders,
We’re having a great time here and we don’t want to leave, especially because we had pancakes for breakfast today!!

Today was our second to last day in the school, the classes had settled down and we felt we had really bonded with all the children particularly because our older class is of a similar age to us. As we are having an end of week show tomorrow our older class taught us a traditional Malawian song which their performance of was amazing although our Tonga needs a bit of practice. Our lunch of rice and cabbage today was much more appetising than yesterdays. Kyle loved it.(surprise, surprise)

After lunch we were lucky enough to have the chance to visit one of our pupils homes and meet their family which on one hand gave us a real insight into their culture and made us feel very fortunate for everything we have as the family were desperate for the simple opportunity to afford for their child to access secondary school however we also felt a little as though we were intruding on their personal life, although the family were extremely welcoming

We returned to butterfly and relaxing by the lake, evening meal and debrief we are now all ready for bed and thankful that we only have to walk up the dreaded hill one last time tomorrow and excited to perform our newly learnt African vocals.

See you soon, Haresh and Megan

Ps: we love your comments! Martin G where you at?

Hi Rory and fellow campers
Sorry I haven't been commenting. I've had no internet until today so am just catching up on all your news. It seems you are a real hit with the school children but also that the trip is an education for you all as well. So glad to hear you are safe and well, enjoying your time and working hard. I'd like to see a few more pictures of you, Rory, you seem a bit camera shy!!
Missing you, looking forward to seeing you (not soon enough) but hoping you have a fantastic send off tomorrow and enjoy the rest of your time. Lots of love R&B xx

We love the blog. Thanks for keeping us up to date and for the photos.
Its really good to see you all doing your bit. Your hosts look really pleased to see you each day and I'm sure they would love you to stay for another week or two. I hope someone recorded your beautiful singing so we can hear it when you get back - will it make number 1?????? Seriously, make the most of every day. Keep taking the photos and hopefully recording in your diaries all those special moments to share when you get back. We can't wait to hear all about it.
Harriet - we are sharing the blog and photos everyday with G &G . You'll be pleased to hear they are a bit happier now they can see what you're up to but say don't forget the suntan lotion!!
Work hard and have fun.
Love you loads
Allison, Andy, G &G
