Today we were let loose in the kitchen! Cecilia and Georgina made the porridge, it was really nice. We all added Nutella it was great.
After breakfast we set off for a local farm which was a 45 minute walk away, it was really hot! When we finally got there we were greeted by the owner’s assistants who took us around all the sustainable development technology, it was really interesting. The owner of the farm was one of the professors at the NIE Crest university, where we went on Monday. We all went to look around the farm and saw BIG tree houses, they were amazing. We also saw rain water harvesting, bio gas, solar powered fencing and a mud house, it was great to see some of the technology we saw at NIE Crest in action. It was really helpful having Manju (one of our Raleigh leaders) there to translate for us. The language of this area is Kanada.
On the way back we stopped to get a coconut water drink, they were amazing and really refreshing. Also we stopped for vegetables and fruits for lunch. After a very long 45 minute walk we arrived back to field base and made lunch, tuna and sweetcorn pasta, it was so yummy.
After lunch we painted some educational boards to give to the school in Hosavidahundi! We painted 3 boards, one with pictures of how to wash your hands, one with some useful English phrases and one with the words to a song we taught them (A Sailor Went to Sea).
Next we packed to get ready to go to the Hotel tomorrow morning, it was really sad. I don’t want to leave field base. We then went to the logs (logistics) room and bought lots of Raleigh T-Shirts, some of money from this will help to fund future volunteers. We had another great day today!
