So people, your favourite Banham is doing some actual manual labour! I have been cementing the walls of the new classroom we are finishing, (by the way, the term is grafting!) and tomorrow we start on the roof, which is going to be so hard, but awesome. When I get home I will be buff! Haha, maybe not. We got a bit distracted on Friday afternoon though, and it ended with a whole keg of water being poured on me, I was actually cool for the first time since we arrived!
Many things have happened this week, I played a football match against a load of 8 year olds, the girls lost 3-1, but they were impressed that we scored a goal! We have a rematch tomorrow evening so I will let you know how it goes. I also watch a football match, we went into the local town on Wednesday night and saw the Liverpool v. Chelsea game in a sports bar, it was like being at home, apart from the fact that it was still about 25 degrees!
Everyone here is really nice, there are 18 of us, 12 girls and 6 boys and there it not one person who I don't like. My closest friend is also called Emma, and she is a total legend, had a low night last night and she got me through it, but then the tables turned when she got a bit drunk and I had to make sure she got home at the end of the night, it was like being out with the girls and making sure people didn't die out in Chelters!
We saw a bush baby on Friday night, they are not as exciting as you think, we thought they would look like Furby's but they are more like orange lemurs with long tails, quite cute though! There were only a few of us in camp at the time, so we went on a bit of a bush baby hunt and had such a laugh!
I would like to make it clear that although I got burnt last week, I am slowly (very slowly) tanning and so when I come home none of you will recognise me! At the moment it is quite hard to see if we are tanning, cos we all look the same colour and are in the same boat. But it will be obvious when I get back and you are all pasty white!!!!!
Anyways got to go and make the most of the beach, only time I will be here till Saturday, and it is always so beautiful. Welcome home mum and dad, hope you had fun skiing and I will call you tomorrow so there will be more tears. I guess I should just stop calling the people I love the most, but that is just me!
Love you all lots and lots...
