Yesterday we had a very special day as we split up into ones and twos and spent the day with different families in the village.
This was a very different experience from going around as a group. We were able to see what everyday life is like for people in Chuluchosema. We were invited into houses, ate together and some of us got the chance to join in the food preparation and other activities.
The hospitality from our host families was wonderful. We now each have new friends.
The day also gave us a lot to reflect on. We shared or experiences and talked about our feelings in the evening, but we will each be continuing to process our experiences for a while.
We are all still well and there have been no mishaps.
There were one or two interesting situations like when Lauren and Nicola blew up one of the balloons they had brought for the children. However, all the children were outside at the time so four adults ended up patting the balloon to reach other around the room for several minutes, “because none of us knew how to stop”.
Today we will join in the Agogo (Grandparents) Club and see the Saturday feeding and craft project.
The weather remains overcast and cool, but apparently a lot drier than Glenrothes.
