YRSC Blog 8th May
This morning the two girls went on a game drive in the Mongena Lodge safari park after a 5:15am breakfast. I joined them. It was cold in the morning air before the sun got up but gradually warmed up. We saw a variety of animals, most impressive being the rhino. By 9am we were back in camp as the park was just 15 minutes down the road. The children were given two hours to go away and have a sleep if they wanted to before a morning activity. The boys were introduced to the E-ball and I have forgotten the other activity but I will update it tomorrow.
In the afternoon the YRS Olympics were help in glorious sunshine on the large playing field that form part of the camp grounds. Switzerland did win a medal in the sack race but India took the most medals of the afternoon. A good time was had by all and at least with only 4 in the Swiss team they all had plenty to do.
In the evening everyone met again in their baraza groups to have a debrief. The groups are getting livelier as they get to know each other.
It's the boys turn to sleep out so at 10pm they were ready with their sleeping bags and headed out to the edge of the camp grounds in the trees. They will leave on their game drive before we wake up tomorrow morning. The girls were very tired to were straight into bed.
