    Now finally awake and up by noon we got dressed and went down to the hotel restaurant for a very tasty buffet lunch. All the staff have been very welcoming and our waitress for lunch was truly fun and engaging. Perhaps #1 or #2 of all-time waitstaff I every had.

Although it's only goodbye to the house for one of us with Rebecca extending her volunteering for another whole month! We also visited a lady named Riscpa who has HIV. Seeing where she lives and her state of health was pretty confronting.. A mud hut with barley any space to move- and yet when we came in offered her ...

    ... Unfortunately, the girl who had taken the taxi up, was the last one; the leading guide had to take off his shoes, his bag, and descend to her assistance. After a short rest, we continued onward. The return trip was easy going, and despite the rain, there was nothing to worry about. Unlike the rest of the group, my camera was waterproof, and I had left my iPhone back at the house. This proved to be the best decision of the day, as there was not even a millimetre on ...
