Join us on a video tour of the Home for AIDS Orphans in Mwandi, Zambia – our home for the past 10 days.
We were surprisingly comfortable and extremely well fed with Western style meals (think pasta, sandwiches, PB&J as back up). So much so, that finally – tonight our last night – I requested a Zambian meal!
First: our cute, messy cabin:
A sideways upside down video, because my kids can’t follow directions re holding the iPhone sideways when filming videos. Their vlog career may have stopped and started in one fell swoop…
The kitchen and dining area where we eat our meals, drink tea and play games in the evening.
A walk about the property with Zara and Vivi:
All in all we were quite comfortable.
- 7:30-8am breakfast
- 8am – 12noon: volunteer building homes or teaching at preschool
- 12-2pm: lunch and rest
- 2-4pm: second volunteer work shift
- 4-6pm: freetime (we’d wander into town)
- 6pm: dinner
- Bedtime: sometimes as early at 8pm. We were tired!!!
Though other nights we would play cards or games with the other volunteers, or braid hair, watch movies on our iPhones til late…
