hey all

finished the week painting, others went white water rafting, and now also going to organize where next week will take me, hopefully to the main city and who knows where!!!

Dan is leaving today, its the start of the goodbyes this weekend, its amazing meeting people but sad saying goodbye, but hey thats what life is all about!!
it was cool painting it was the original 5, Jess, Reck, Elles, Dan and I last day of painting so it was an end of a 3 week volunteer time.

but i found out on the last day why girls have to have short hair due to health reasons and they wear no shoes for the same reason, but its quite sad a girl in the village who had her hair longer than the right inch had to be suspended, and education means everything to them!!
its even more sad that a lad who helped taught us ugandan language and we taught him english had to leave at year 4 so he could sell ice pops to make money to go to the next year in school its sad to thnk about that education costs a lot of mooney for here, and you relasie how some of the children have smart uniforms and others do not you relasie they just can afford the education.

we finished this week meeting Edwina from Aus so newbies come all the time, 17 people painted today cos of the overland tour company were in so a new mode of transport was used to get to the school.
also started packing up for Kampala definitely gona go i think sunday night, washing clothes here in Bujagli is rubbish compared to on site, im used to washing in a bucket thank goodness for travel wash ay!!! no on site the sun always shone so clothes always dried in a few hours!!! really need to buy clothes!!!
it was quite a cool day though final meeting with Shaz and seeing what everyone has been up to, also seeing the guys rafting video too, they flipped a couple of times!!!
last final meeting though its been a truly amazing charity to work with and you never know i may be back, i will defintily celebrate the 10 year anniversary, where theres gona be parties all over the world in November!! so it just depends were i am in the world

peace out xxxxxxxx
