Day 4 St Lucia

A travel blog entry by bushmantours

Arriving at False Bay we could see the water level was much higher than our last visit. There was very little foreshore visible but birds such as storks, heron, ducks and teal were evident.

Returning to St Lucia we ate home-made bobotie that we couldn't have yesterday due to the power outage.

Talented lady right there!
Friday was my LAST DAY on project :( so sad! Thankfully Nokwethemba ...

Week 3: half way through

A travel blog entry by abbymwerner


The end of my third week here in St. Lucia marks the halfway point in my stay! Crazy! These first 3 weeks have flown by and I cant imagine how fast the last 3 will go.

This week included lots of highs and lows. At the beginning of the week we learned that one of our patients on our nutrition program passed away - he was only 12. He had been in the hospital for some time, but we were last told by his grandmother that he was improving, ...
