We all went to Ritchie to finish the last things, to say goodbye and to literally put a hand in the cement with our name. These tiles are laid in the path to the school so that we symbolically leave a hand and a foot. We have worked on the floor, the painting of the walls and the wall drawing until 12.00 o’clock.

No trip to Africa without a safari. Enjoy the pictures of the sunrise and the beautiful views. In the last scene, you also witness the goat-dung competition. You are reading it well, in this game you have to spit an excrement of a goat as far away as possible. Maybe this video is not played on a mobile phone. The music is copyrighted so you cannot play this movie on all devices. But I had to use the Lion King’s music under this movie. There was no discussion possible with the students. During the recording, they sang this song constantly.

It was a normal work day though slowly but surely, we can see the end approaching. A couple of things are in their final stages, which was good to see. After days of preparation; a start was made on the mural. Fenne, the artist, was satisfied with the work and cooperation so far. We also hired a sanding machine to put the finishing touches on the floor. After scrubbing the paint off the walls the houses were finally ready to be repainted. The freshly painted jungle gym is also glistening brightly.

A trip to Africa would not be complete without a safari. Saturday morning we organized a soccer tournament in Ritchie, then we left for the wilderness. We sat literally in the field, between the wildlife. This was unique. We could use the house ‘in the middle of nowhere’ of Jaco, a well-known acquaintance of Ton.

It was a ordinary working day but it was little bit different than other days. A number of students and Mr. Rijk went to Koliwe early in the morning to help her prepare food for the elderly in the township. Koliwe lives in the township from her retirement, including some gifts, she prepares three meals a week for old people in need. The other students went to work until 12:00, after which they joined the cooking group to distribute the food.
