Today was the first of six working days on the building site. At first it seemed like it was going to be a long day but as the day continued we became comfortable. The local kids helped us with everything from collecting sand for cement to piling bricks. It was such a good experience.
During the third working period of three we took a short break to admire the view that Malawi had to offer. We took some pictures and some of the children joined us, soon after we went to collect water for the contractors to mix concrete. Sooner than expected the day ended and we returned to our compound for showers.
Everyone chipped in with making dinner today and the whole group loved it, including the guards! We created a stew which chef Tolu referred to as Chaka Laka Soya Surprise with white rice. Day One went great!
