Where I stayed
HAd amazing few days of work with the kids, the girls braided my hair a bit and the boys were telling me how they get beaten at home with belts and their fathers fists! I then saw a child being hit across the knuckles with a wooden ruler and he screamed, it was really really hard to believe what i was seeing. But i got a really good works report, apparently the kids adore me and the staff don't want me to leave...not bad!
On thursday AJ left to go back to England which was really hard for me, so bit of a rubbishy day on thursday but Friday was "dirty day" we went to Snowdon School in Heathfield and we were delegated a painting task for the school. Unfortunately the kids were all sent home as we would never get work done if they were there! very true!
Me and four other girls got to decorate some car tyres, and the others painted the alphabet and numbers on the school walls. The school was so basic, a tiny garden as a playground, four walls for the entire school, tin roof so it was SO hot, just a blackboard chairs and one table!
We had great fun painting each other as well as the tyres! We then left and the plan was to go to Negril but forecast was to storm all weekend so we had to change last minute and guess who was organising it all??? ME! so i had to ring round everyone and cancel and change transport arrangements etc. So we decided on Treasure BEach again! But it is so amazing i didn't mind! We had to take public bus to Junction to change to get a taxi to Treasure BEach. The bus...had 20 people on it with a capacity for 12! My god it was hot and sweaty betty! it cost us 150 JD which is like a pound!! For a whole hour of travelling! It's awesome!
That night we all sat on the beach with some rum and i got to know more volunteers better as all my best friends have left now so was really nice!
Saturday we lazed by the beach all day and then went swimming in the sea for 3 hours!!!!!! Then all the girls just came into my hotel room in the evening and we jus chatted all night.
Sunday i was up at 7am after the worst night sleep ever! Mosquitoes, serious heat and sand bloody everywhere! So i went straight onto the beach! Then at midday we took a boat out in to the ocean and went snorkling, yes i did it!!!! It was scary as! but i did it! Then we went to Pelican bar again, still amazes me even though i've seen it before! It was awesome fun! Then we travelled back on a bus just 7 of us on it this time...absolutely amazing we had room to move!!! Last week of work now im home next week aggghhhh!!!
