... flushing, sinks, and dishes. So the boys all had to roll the big water barrels back to the waterfall in order to fill up. In the meantime all the girls stayed in a small village in Mamaro and played with the little kids for about three hours while they filled the tanks. Once the tanks were refilled we were told we have no more chances from here onwards to refill again. So for about three days now none of us have showered.

Basic! The living conditions are extreme basic. Let me begin by explaining our living conditions in Zambia. In Zambia we stayed at a volunteer house called Sunbird Guest House. Martin and I were lucky enough to have a room together, we had our own bathroom, shower, and even bath tub (although it was always covered in ants). We had a fridge and freezer (even thought the power was out 8 hours a day so frozen things got ruined). We had a common area where when the power ...
