As soon as I walked through the exit I saw a black African man holding a paper sign saying "B Notley". I waved to him and me came and met me. He introduced himself (Jeffery) and then insisted on taking all of my bags. He got me to wait in the car park while he got the car and brought it to me. I had a few men yell out ...

      9 go to Kenya

      A travel blog entry by 9gotoafrica on Sep 27, 2014

      We managed a bit of a sleep in this morning. Late breakfast and then a couple of hours by the pool before our departure from Vic Falls. We caught a taxi to the airport for our 1pm flight back to J'berg.

      Afterwards came snacks (mandazis and their treat of soda) and a furry of photo taking. We all went crazy snapping selfies and taking hundreds of photos with the students and teachers. We haven’t done much of that throughout the teaching days, so it was fun to share in the photos with the students. They loved it too! All wanting to see the photos we took, jumping into groups and surrounding us!

      When the students finished picking up the trash, we did a hand washing exercise. Earlier in the morning we went out and purchased for them a jug of water, so that after, they could wash their hands. Earlier in the week we provided them with soap as part of their hygiene education, with the leftover soap we used that to wash their hands. It was ...
