This morning we once again get another beautiful farewell assembly from the villagers. This time they call us up individually by name and thank us. We then set off four our hike, this turned out to be my favourite hike day yet, the longest, but everyone seems to have found their stride so it went quickly. Along the way we stop at a village to play volleyball and pass an orchard where we steal oranges to eat. One of the funniest things to see though I ...

The walks on this trek are never easy and after more rain, leeches, waterfalls, sore muscles and slippery rocks, we arrived ahead of schedule and I gave Dan a big hearty hug! YAY!!!
