I've just arrived from an exhausting 3 days in Khayelitsha, working with the orphans. Although tiring, it was amazing to be in the presence of these kids. They really have next to nothing, but they always have a bright smile on their faces, always open to affection no matter the age, and of course, have huge amounts of energy. For example, there's 2 bikes that were paid by donations by previous volunteers, simple bikes to ride around the block. They're so excited and happy to see the bikes come out of the volunteer house, just like a child opening gifts on Christmas day. It just makes volunteering that much better and more rewarding. The one thing you definitely notice about these kids is that they always love affection, whether it's hugging, kissing, or just spending time with them, they really appreciate it. Not to mention the toddlers are adorable. They're so cute, and they're for the most part, good natured. There's one toddler that I have a love and hate relationship. Her name I think is Janelle, and she's about 3 years old, doesn't speak a lick of English, only Khosa, a type of African language, and she's so wild and amusing. She's a newbie but I think that she has a disorder. Definitely an attention seeker, but she has fits of rage. She'll start violently swinging her arms trying to punch you, then start laughing her head off for some reason. Then she'll grab your leg with her left arm, then start swinging her entire upper body to club you with her right arm. She also shifts her weight to her left leg, kinda in a model-type pose with one arm on her waist, then with the other give you the middle finger. I wanted to take photos of her but my camera ran out of batteries, I'll definitely have 'em up next time I go. I'll update with more to say later!
