Milene in Africa
Ok a few dayshave gone by and I do apoligise for taking so long to add a new entry, but I've been very busy with the school. Have a look at the pictures if you are curious. The school is simple, but I'm well intoit now. Teaching is great and I'm having a great time with the children and the staff. The creative arts class was my favourite so far, but the kids had nothing to colour so I bought some colouring pencils on Saturday. It was a very hot day yesterday and we went to Fort Jesus (Old Town Mombasa). We had our guide, Andrew a volunteer, who was great. He showed us around and told us all about the Fort and the many people who used it (Portuguese, Oman, English, etc). After that we headed to Bombolulu Cultural Centre and Workshop, a place run for/by disabled people. It was great! We had some very good food and a dance show that was almost exclusive as there was just a very few people there! I dared to oin in the dance with one of the dancers... it was good fun. We also had a tour of the workshops and bought a few things from the shop. A Matatu back to town and another one back home and I was tired! I had a night in with the family, watching the 'Secreto de Amor' soapopera... a real laugh! Today it has been raining a lot so I've been walking around with Eimear, getting lost and finding our way again. I hope you are all well. You can see a couple of very short films on http://uk.briefcase.yahoo.com/mbizachi for a bit of fun!
