      So many cute kittens here! Shared a room with 9 other girls, the air con in our room would short circuit the whole block so spent 10 days getting drunk just so I could pass out in the heat of that room haha! The bar was excellent, I learned to really hate Smirnoff ice and love savanna cider! I got pretty good at fusball, or so I thought, and was first on the microphone for karaoke on night 1!

      What to expect in a third world country

      With a group of 30+ young travelers the accommodation was suited to our travelling needs (sufficient dorms, common area for eating- meetings etc, and of course a great pool and bar!) sure the dorms were not in the best state for hygiene (cleanliness) or security (door locks), and most nights those who waited too long would miss out on running water to shower, but for a first time visiting a third world country with a big volunteer group this is what I expected. The staff at BIBS were all very friendly and by the end of our stay we were saddened to leave the community we had grown so fond of. If I was to ever return to Saint Lucia I wouldn't hesitate to stay at BIB's again and would recommend it for anyone else travelling there (would also recommend it be with a group of people however) However the area I thought was quite safe close to shops and plenty of restaurants. Great stay!

      Today we will tour the wetland park, this too is David's first, so we both have much to discuss. According to the map there are several visiting points, where you can view the area, getting off the car is at your own ...

      ... If an elephant or a rhino charges at you, don't run - easier said than done! Rick is dead serious when he talks to us and its easy to see that this is nothing to take lightly, I start to wonder what the hell we are doing! Too late now, we get in the car and drive the 15 minutes to the start of the trail. With arriving late last night, we missed sending our belongings with the donkeys to camp, so we have to carry everything ourself in the backpack. Its totally fine ...

      ... James then got astonished when cars would overtake when cars coming quite close in the opposite direction. I saw sugar cane harvesting by hand. I think most crop harvesting is done by hand. Saw work men using whipper snippers to cut grass on road edges then women would rake the grass with sticks. They also burn off beside the road as a fire break, different drip torch, piece of wire with flame on end and paint tin of fuel!!! Not much in the way of PPE. Arrived at Ubizane ...

      ... and some birds, heron and jacana. We followed the Vlei Loop (Vlei means marshland in Afrikaans) which leads to a large pan, full of water lilies and wetland plants. More hippo here with jacanas and ibis.

      We stopped for a lunch at Mission Rocks picnic site before visiting the beach. On the way down we saw blue wildebeest, zebra and kudu. There wasn't much beach in evidence, just the rocks and pools as the tide was ...
