Today was by far the hottest day we have had on site, at least 35 degrees. We worked from 8 to 12 and 2 till 4. There was more painting for half of the group and the rest were getting to grips with power tools in order to secure the siding boards (walls). Mr Fanagan was very frustrated with the power tools at first, after having just mastered hammering. Before lunch he dropped the drill and went off in a huff of frustration. After lunch however the old dog learnt a new trick, and had to be dragged off the site at 4pm. Everybody is in good form, even Moritz who lost to some of the female staff at pool!!!!
This evening we went into the hills for a BBQ.... Braai... it was great craic. We were entertained with impersonations of all staff members by Hal Downer and David Beresford. Milano sang some lovely traditional songs around the camp fire as we were all being devoured by giant mosquitoes!!!
Miss Bustard will post some photos soon.
Thanks to all who have followed our progress and have helped make this trip possible.
