    ... for the whole of the time here and ours is nature. This week we sang songs, and the patients made musical instruments out of bottles to make sounds of the jungle. Patients also wrote poetry and stories related to jungle and their favourite animals etc. I particularly love this project as patients really want to get involved.

One name stood out though "Rob Smith" so in our childish, still drunk from the night beforeness we bet a beer on who could identify him first. I won.
