Hi everyone, today we had another early start at 6am to have breakfast at 7. Lucky (the chef) had made another delicious bacon and eggs on toast.
Before we got on the bus we had a Zulu singing lesson from johnny the bus driver, with mixed results. We spent the whole of the school day Zama (the school). We had another South Africa history lesson at 10 with the teacher Nandy, which focused on the start of segregation in Africa. After the lesson we all split up into groups:
some of us were playing chess with children, some were playing football (or soccer as they call it), some were playing netball, some were doing jigsaws with the children. PersonallyI (Ted) was gardening and I (James) kept failing at completing a map of Africa jigsaw (which eventually i cheated at).
Throughout the day Nandy taught (or at least attempted to) teach everyone how to play the marimba, which is an incredibly large xylophone which takes around 8 people to play. Then I (Ted) received a thank you card from some of the children thanking us for visiting them, which was really moving. My camera (James) battery lived a short life as the kids enjoyed looking at and taking photos of themselves, however it did leave some surprisingly high quality photos.
After the bus journey we had been informed about another early start tomorrow, which comes to no surprise at this point and we have all taken it as a new routine.
Hi family, I’m having the time of my life out here, missing you lots and I can’t wait to get back an give you all a big hug. Lots of love Ted.
Dad you talent-less idiot have you finished the amateur league on GT2? Ginge have you got sunburnt yet, surprisingly i haven’t at all or even got bitten much. James.
