Today. Road Maintenance. Oh my god - the heat! For a change we got to wear shorts and vest tops so it was nice cause we could really appreciate the breeze! I was part of the "HOE TEAM!", big bunch of sluts we where.. joking, we just hoed things.. like on the ground.. with a hoe.. i know, how dull! haha. As hard as the road maintenance was, i would say it has been my favourite so far - a bit of pain in the back and arms plus a surn burnt back - whats not to love?! ..but i genuinly did enjoy it It was really good banter and obviously we had a good auld sing song today to "i like big buts and i cannot lie..", you know the rest. Many centipedes appeared, blue a wriggly and apparently very poisonous, not goo. It was so good to see the road done, to see all your hard work pay off! And we where the first to drive on it!
In the afternoon we did the womens group visit, we where greeted with singing and, as i always am, i was a bit nervous. It was amazing and we joined in and it was so much fun! We did a variety of things - gathered peas, split the peas, soak them, ground them and weaved grass.. obviously played with the chickens and baby goats on the way though!
When we where pounding we where told to sing a traditional song to pound to so OBVIOUSLYYYY i cracked out a bit of Usher - OMG styleee. It raised much laughter.
OH! I also made my first Elephant spot today, aaaand of the biggest heard we have seen so far, all hidden away in the trees.. 30 or so of them! :D
Sitting here listening to Taylor Swift's Love Story, i seriously think i'm the happiest i've been in a reeeeally long time. Feel like i have 'Hakuna matata' - just glad to... get away
