Today was the day to get the school cleaned and ready for the kids coming back on Wednesday. As was usual in situations like this, I tried my best to help but really ended up making matters worse. The main problem was that it had poured the night before. I went outside this morning and my feet sank into the soil. My shoes were covered in dirt which would not come off. As a result I ran around barefoot all day, and mostly trailed mud wherever i went. In a cleaning situation- this isn't good! Was fun though cause the way they ended up cleaning the floor was to fire bars of soap on it (Which of course I slipped on) and let rip with a hosepipe!  

After valiently trying to help, and being told i was not doing it right, I ended up playing carrom for an hour with one of the kids and got torunced 6 games to nil! And  also helped knock some star fruit from the tree- which are delicious. Very sour but nice all the same!

Our friends from the church never came today. Hope everything is ok with them!

Also was told that the the teachers here at simle do not get very much pay. They only get around 4500/5000 a month. That is around 25 pounds. When you have children to feed as most of the teachers do, this really does not go very far!
