    The ocean here was fantastic! So warm! The food here is amazing! Not very African comparitively, the breakfast lunch and dinner are all so delicious! Andthe bar is also nice and not terrbily expensive. They also have reaonably priced horse back riding and snorkeling is nearby. Not a very busy place when I went but enough people to make a party. The huts are very modest little tent sturctures that are fine except foor all the bugs. We had a problem with huge spiders and milipedes, we weren't harmed but it was scary and hard to sleep. So as far as sleeping accomodations you get what you pay for because it is very cheap. but overall I had a great experience!

    It's hard to believe that I'm already nearing the end of my incredible volunteer experience. Over the course of the past 6 weeks I've had the pleasure of meeting, teaching, talking to and learning from some amazing students, teachers, volunteers, 4H staff, and many other interesting community members. I have visited 8 different schools and engaged in HIV/AIDS conversations with over 800 people. There have been some success, challenges, clarity (and confusion), and most importantly ...

    ... by the children's successes. Teachers are paid a moderate salary (less than $100 per week) but don't have the luxuries of small class sizes, easy access to resources, or professional development days. I have no doubts that teaching is one of the most difficult and important jobs in this world, and yet all of the teachers I have met at home and through my work here are patient, kind, and generous people that rarely complain and expect nothing in return for their efforts. Now, ...

    ... idea of late and my idea of late are definitely two different things, the jet lag had kicked in full force by that point, so I finally convinced them to take me home at the 'early' hour of 1:30am (they went back out and didn't come home until the sun was up)! In regards to work, baba Baruti works at a sisal distributing centre, mama stays at home, Neema is in the final stages of becoming a nurse, Enicky is in school (studying ...

    ... In this area we also
    saw the old Customs building from 1895. Once again most of it has
    fallen down but a small section is still in use as the Customs
    office. Even though we have travelled a lot I can still be saddened
    by the conditions of the way people live, yet the people arevery
    happy. We then returned to the vehicle and drove northwards and
    stopped for the night in the town of ...

    Andy: now at lake Malawi the fun could really start and we decided to take a boat out to the island you can see in the picture. Doesn't look that far but I think the tide kept pushing it further and further away as we struggled to get their before our arms fell off. Once there we decided to have a bit of a jump off the aptly named rock of despair. I thought it would be best to not even look at what we were jumping into and promptly jumped off. ...
