Hi from the Team!
We?re currently in Blantyre having successfully finished the vast majority of the school project in Songani. We?re all safe and well and currently helping clear paths (to create fire breaks) and repainting signposts on the trails at Michuru Nature Sanctuary about 8km outside of Blantyre. We?re now camping in the middle of the bush and sharing the site with hyenas (we can hear them but haven?t seen any yet!).
The pics below include; the project as we left it (the contractors are currently finishing the roof, the plastering and the drainage channels), the completed climbing frame with actual children using it ? the creosote hadn?t quite dried but they didn?t seem to mind, post footy (Malawi 3 – England 0), sunrise from Zomba plateau, Mike and his commissioned tea pot and Hayden complete with an M16 (please note parents the lack of a magazine i.e. it?s not loaded!). Just in case you were wondering where the gun came from, it belongs to the Michuru rangers who use it to apprehend poachers and also for keeping us safe.
Anyway, best get back to work, hope all is well in Blighty!
