Location: Kenya

MapOn Thursday Myself and Allan had to take one of the lad's from our football team to the hospital as he has broken his hand during training, what an experience that was it is a horrible place won't go into details about what I saw as it was not nice at all.
On thursday evening we gave the football team there football boots that we have baught for them they were so pleased. I dont think I have ever seen a group of Lad's be so greatfull and excited it was really amazing to watch. That is a memory that will stay with me forever. They then went and played like we haven't seen them play before they were brilliant.
Over the weekend we went to and place called Kisumu which is on the bank's of Lake Vicroria. The view from our room was just breathtaking which made up for the interesting evening entertainment but obviously this didn't stop us having fun.
On staurday we went on a five hour boat trip on Lake Victoria, we went to an Island for a few hours where i learnt how to fish the kenyan way unfortunatly I don't think I am that good at it as I didn't catch anything. We then went to a restaurant arriving in style by boat.
On sunday we all got up at 5.30am to go back to the lake for another boat trip and to watch the sun rise while beening on the lake, this was a fantastic sight.
Today I have been at school where we have been writting letter for me to bring back and give to the children in the schools that the warden's go into this will hopefully help the children here with their English and teach the children at home about a different country and culture. The children seem to really enjoy writing their letter's and are very excited about getting a reply and answer's to all their question's.
