Hey everyone. Sorry ive been rubbish at updating. Have been away for a while with not internet. Since I've updated last we've been on safari, we tried rafting but Hannah got her face smashed up and we've spent a week in the a fantastic place in wakiso, an orphanage/school, with some of the most incredible people I've met here. So quite a bit to write about.
Hannah's face is looking soo much better, she was smashed under the eye by a stray oar on the first rapid. We saw a craniofacial surgeon and he told us it's all good so ptl about that.
We spent last week in the orphanage where me and Hannah taught lessons to the children and spent time playing football and netball with the teams.
The teachers there were incredible because the pay they get is unheard of even in Uganda let alone England. But keeping the teachers motivated on such little pay can be very difficult. We had such a fantastic time. And we hope that we taught the kids and teachers as much as they taught us. They were so thankful for the smallest of gifts. The director has been trig for years to get operation Christmas child and many other organisations like that. But he's been unsuccessful at getting any, so me and Hannah are going o be recommending them.
We taught English maths re pe and science. We also had a chance to teach them about some diseases vaccines and HIV. The kids understood our accents more and more everyday. A lot of the time ugandans can speak fluent English to each other but when an English person or an American person speaks to them it can be like hearing bother language for them. So we have spent time in the schools helping them with pronouncing the words so that they will be able to talk to and understand people from different countries.
We had a good time at the safari minus some several car troubles. Saw 100s of hippos and monkeys. But we would definitely like to go to a bigger safari one day, seeing the animals in their natural habitat was crazy exciting.
Will get up some sweet videos of monkeys and hippos when we get back on Friday morning.
We are quite looking forward to going home but leaving the kids will be very difficult. But thankfully 2 Americans and a Dutch lady have arrived to spend time with the children.
We can't wait to come home and share the photos with you and talking in detail about our month. Last day tomorrow. Will be HIV testing again. Just 1 positive out of 50 tested today which in unheard of here. Let's hope we can go lower tomorrow and have an all negative day.
And yes that is a hippo in-between us in the picture.
