Today we left the house at 8:00am to embark on our mission to renovate martha's house. (our house cleaner and local resident of the township we will be working in)
Looong day of heavy lifting, digging, painting, chiselling, etc etc...
Coming into the township: masimpumulele was quite an eye opener, the "houses" that these thousands of people reside in wouldn't pass for a garden shed back home it's so hard to comprehend these conditions as a way of life... I've seen it on television, but in real life it's quite a disturbing experience, the poverty is REAL.... The kids finding stray crisps on the floor to eat.
we are going back there tomorrow to continue this 4 day job... So more to read tomorrow :)
