After another thunder-free night (thank God!) the day started with the ear bleeding noise from the alarm at ridiculous o'clock. Everyone clambered out of bed, tired yet motivated. Then...yay! Time for the Bouncy Bus Bonanza, passing the famous wild monkeys on route. Breakfast consisted of weird rice cake ball things and... surprise, surprise... CURRY!
Then followed more extravagant and varied lessons, ranging from science to dancing to the YMCA. Then came another incredibly energetic episode of 'The Hannah and Mikey Show' where Charlotte, Alice, Stu, Ryan, Sophie and Chloe B all participated in the fun-filled games. Alice and Jevhan had an emotional moment when a student gave them each a really sweet letter (cue: awwhhhhh).
By mid-morning, the sun was beating down and we all began to feel the effect; sweating buckets but drinking endless bottles of water. Some enjoyed the spirited game of rounders, whereas most of the team watched from the side line (in the shade). Others painted hand-print trees with the eager children. Then came lunch...CURRY; the usual ratio of 3:1. We are, also, still being haunted by a swarm of annoying flies. But Eden and Jevhan decided to start ninja-chopping them. It didn't really go to plan...
Afternoon activites were mainly inside (woohoo!) so some of us took the time to wind down. NOT! The kids were still as hyper-active as have been throughout the week. Eden, Jevhan, Alice, Lily and Zach taught their group of children the song 'In the Jungle' which didn't particularly go as planned, ending in a mess of noise, but the kids still had a great time and that's what matters.
In the afternoon session of 'The Hannah and Mikey Show' volunteers from each team stood at the front and threw beanbags at a bottle, with yet another twist. Blindfolds. Teachers from the school even joined in and everyone had a blast. Although we had to end it when one unlucky child received a bean bag to the head (joking).
Then we all started to calm down. The children all had free play so most of the team sat in our shaded upstairs area and had a drink. After preparing our resources for the following day, the team gathered and awaited more curry.
Now we are off Sari shopping, travelling in Tuk-Tuks.
