Weydon Day 2


Our first full day at MEF! At what felt like an early start of 7:00 (which apparently is a luxury) we met in the office to make the elephant’s vitamin balls. While the boys made the dough mix, the girls counted out the vitamins and then we were allowed to feed them to the elephants.

After breakfast, we got into groups and cleaned out the elephant beds, which was very hot and very hard work but we all felt satisfied when we were finished. To cool off, we went to do a river clean, where we found many miscellaneous items and hopefully made it safer for the elephants.

After a lunch of curry, we designed our project for tomorrow (recycling bins) and then went and painted the walls, which proved to be a harder task than it seemed. We then went and washed Pooja, an elephant. The boys then swung from a vine in the river, while the girls went and got ice creams from the shop quickly followed by the boys.

We are now sat around the dinner table talking about home but also about what we are looking forward to in the next few days.

P.s. We are gradually getting used to the heat, with help from the cold showers!
