Matipwilli, Tanzania: Received much needed help from the students

Posted in Tanzania on January 27, 2012

WE FINISHED THE CONCRETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After mentally preparing myself over breakfast for a full day of shoveling it was a sigh of relief at the work site to see the cavalry arrive. The pupils from the school literally rolled up their trousers, some took off their shoes too, and then went at it with vengeance... or maybe it was the thought of how much better their school dinners might taste with the new kitchen. Tomorrow is our last day. All we have left to do is pull an old army stove that’s been re-painted into position, and tidy a few things up. The end is in sight.
