Jambo!

Well what a day today has been! in my opinion (laura) the best so far!
This morning we went to the nursery. When we arrived the plasterers were just doing the last touches to the walls and were just starting on the floor. We then spent a couple of hours teaching lessons but because there was such a small space to work in we decided to take all the kids outside for a miniature sports day. Whilst this was going on a woman came in to do peoples henna tattoos. All the girls had them as they were so cheap! I (lauren) have had one going round my wrist, one on my back and one on my knee going down to my toes. Laura had them on her wrist, on her arm, hands and legs, they look amazing!

We then walked up to Mtwapa for lunch which was cooked by Amina, we couldn’t wait for lunch as Amina is extremely good at cooking! After lunch we spent some time with our close friends and then we walked up to the field pitch for football. I (Laura) was in team A and Lauren was in team B, obviously my team won as i was in it, but i was very impressed with Lauren’s skills. After the girls match it was the boys turn. i think team A might of won but i’m not certain (although Callum did score a goal and started a pitch invasion!). whilst the boys match was happening the Mtwapa girls offered to braid our hair, it looks rather sweet although it looks much better on them than us. We also caught lots of grasshoppers as there was a corn field next door. Jake went and got a tiny grasshopper and held it to Mr.Jones’s face, he screamed like a hormonal girl! it was hilarious! everyone was laughing and pointing at him. Tomorrow we are going to Pirates Beach and so we all asked our close friends to come and join us there.
