... white clothes and basic food. Their only luxury seemed to be the Wellington boots they wore to navigate the many rivers but they wore them bare foot! The children were incredibly cute, you couldn't tell if they were boys or girls since nobody cuts their hair in the village. There were priceless moments when the mango tree in the middle of the houses dropped fruit to the sound of a loud bang - the kids from all around the camp sprint to get to the mango first! For ...
