Said goodbye to Manny and I am now living with the local scout community in Mnkhanya village – very basic, mattress on the floor with a mosquito net, a bucket of cold water each day to wash and a hole in the ground for you know what.
Anyway its really HOT at night so I’m battling to sleep right now but I can live with that. I’m really enjoying having 15 kids in the village hanging around me most of the time. Got some great photos which I will share when I can.
I am here to spend time with the community, courtesy of Chief Mnkhanya, to get an understanding of the challenges they face regarding Drinking Water, Animal-Human conflict (lots of elephants here raiding crops at night etc) and I will be going out on patrol with the anti-poaching guys walking down the river/s looking for and removing snares.
Planning on a movie night with the kids in my “hut” tonight…
… lollipops …and
… the Lion King on my solar charged PC…
More details to follow when I get back to civilisation..
