Field of life

This is the charity we went with,they're an Irish based charity but open to donations from anywhere! you can check them out on www.fieldsoflife.com

Couple of changes to get used to...

It was quite strange getting used to sleeping under a mosquito net, especially when I woke up in the middle of the night and tried to get out of bed and found myself fighting with the net!it was also mighty hard trying to pee down a hole in the ground - girls will be with me on this one,it's far easier for guys!thankfully there were proper loos where we were staying but during the day when we were out working and travelling,we had to get used to the pit!it was the cause of a lot of fun and jokes and our toilet habits became quite common knowledge throughout the 2 weeks - the joy of being around blokes!ha ha!

Team Muzungu!

I'll start off by introducing the team!We were affectionately known as Team Muzungu (muzungu means white man). As you can hopefully notice from the photo, I was in fact the only female on the team! Admittedly at the start I was a wee bit wary about that fact but after a very short time with these guys I soon realised that it was going to be fine!After being with them for 2 weeks I can honestly say that I wouldn't have changed the fact that I was the only girl for anything - I loved it!I officially have new adopted brothers and dads!

Starting from the top left the team are as follows:
