Day 6// Wednesday July 11th, 2018.
We woke up to a breakfast of scrambled egg and toast, then we departed for the school. After meeting our buddies, we had an invigorating workshop, Eddie and I left with Mr Knell and Jude (a teacher at Essaman United) for a quick trip out to get some paint. However, this being Ghana, we returned about 3 hours later after a lengthy discussion in a paint shop, spending about an hour in a roadside market waiting for some wooden planks, and finally we collected 750kg of cement (Eddie attempted carrying a 50kg bag on his head, video will be shown on return). While Eddie and I were away the others undertook another exhilarating workshop. After a lunch of ‘deep fried bean rolls’ we set off to see our buddies houses. It was great to see our buddies houses and meet their parents, I think it was humbling and eye opening experience for us all. Afterwards we said goodbye to our buddies and Stumbled Inn back to the hotel. Tommy’s buddy kindly bought him 3 mango’s which we ate, they really did tingle the taste buds. Then we watched the football. 🙁
Later on we were lucky enough to listen to Laurence play various songs (including My Heart Will Go On and Pirates of the Caribbean) by slapping his sonorous cheeks.
