Wed 21st March
Gonzaga and Paskazia gave us an amazing welcome. We are eating food from their farm and garden where they grow over 25 different fruit and veg. They are almost totally self-sufficient. Today we weeded amongst some banana plants and helped to harvest carrots, tomatoes, bananas and pumpkin and more. In the evening, the Foundation for Sustainable Development gave a ‘Thank you” meal to families who are hosting American college students. Two are staying here so we were all invited to an evening of traditional dancing and singing, enormous plates of food and a funny ‘computerised’ disco with clichéd phrases and canned laughter.
