    ... along the lake shore. We were chatting about what we each do for work. He's a painter and has started teaching the kids in the village how to paint so that if/when they end up on the streets they will have a skill and something they can do for work. He offered to show me his workshop- only two doors down from where I was staying. I met Steven, one of the young artists who was busy at work.

    ... grilling us on different words. She then made a test for us- we scored 8/10 which I thought was pretty good! Shayla's a little worried that it might effect her entrance to Harvard. Nad joined us in Mangochi today- she's come to stay for about a week. We've the whole volunteer gang together now! This evening we all went out to dinner to "Palm Beach", a resort that's run by a dynamo South African woman named Rita and her husband ...

    ... not one of the nasty black mambas. Still looked pretty scary! We had a relaxing evening; the power was out again so we were chilling on the couch reading by torchlight. The tone changed once Shayla had gone into our room to get ready for bed and calmly called out that there was a scorpion next to my bag!
