Love it here! x
The video shows 3 year old Guster choping wood for the cooking fire. He is man of the house when dad is busy working carrying people around on his boda boda (motorbike taxi)
Innocent and I stopped to buy eggs and chapatti for a quick lunch
These children watched me mix paints probably wondering what fun they were going to have at school the next day with Madam Gerry! They are stood beside the family latrine & bathroom
Weekend treat is always sugarcane
They strip it down, chew the flesh and suck the sweet juice
It’sgreat to have small toys to give to the children around.
I think I was pleased
My landlord, pig farmer and great friend Innocent
Guster watched my every move
Mama Guster doing the washing
Judith brought me a live chicken as a welcome gift
The poor chicken couldn’t be let free so there was only one thing for it….
We had it for supper!
The children play in the big hole dug to plant matoki banana seedlings
They never got fed up with watching me but I didn’t mind as they were always smiling!
Small gifts for my young neighbours too
The children don’t have toys as we know them
Dear boy Nico was pleased to get a ball
and his friend too who often helped collect water for me!
Our kitchen. Judith in charge!
More water for Madam Gerry!
Many toddlers screamed when they saw my white face
But this one just stared hard at me!
This young girl wasn’t so sure about the white stranger
A typical mud home
and a posh kitchen!
Most got really excited when I arrived
and love to show off their danced moves!
