Today I got my hair braided whilst I read story books to the children, they drew me lots of pictures to “stick up at home in Australia”. It then started to pour so we waited a little longer and the orphanage, when it stopped, two of the boys took my bike the bigger one on the bike seat, the smaller on in front and me on the silver metal “satchel holder (? You know the part you’d usually attach a baby seat to?) legs either side just off the ground. They rode so fast cause it was raining again, and I couldn’t stop laughing the whole way because it was so fun. Oh, and they all made fun of how small my feet are, and that they all had bigger feet than mine…thanks for that one mum! But it’s moments like this afternoon that make all the challenges and draining nature of volunteering worth the while, seeing the cheshire cat grins plaster from ear to ear at the end of the day.
