When the girls got up to sing the locals turned the machine off - apparently it was men only. We got the owner to turn it back on for the girls to sing.
Sat 17th Emily, Jennie, Kristy, Sarah and myself went by jeep upto Tsongo (pronounced Changu) Lake. The road was mainly very poor, but is being widened with ...
