Not much to report today as we are having a relaxing day due to a public day called Cleaning the Nation. This happens the last saturday of every month but it was postponed last week due to the president being busy (as he gets invloved with the community). This day involves the whole of Gambia and starts at 8am and finishes at 1pm, everyone has to clean their compounds and parts of their streets. Everything shuts down for this period except from hospitals, police and the military camps.
We enjoying the sunshine and listening to music. The locals on the compumd are mixing beats and including their mother tounge (Woolf) and bits of welsh. We have been learning Woolf and teaching them Welsh. Its very refreshing to expereince two different cultures coming together having a good time whilst learning from each other (Cultural exchange).
Again, we are feeling very welcomed into the community and really do feel apart of the family! Just wanted to add that yesterday was a brilliant day and we have ideas on how we can help in the clinic and the community regarding HIV and the sustainability of condoms, also raising awareness in Wales.
Lots of love
