Day 13: Last day on project

Arguably one of our best mornings; we awoke to Marianne's jar of Nutella for breakfast. 

Next, we headed off to our last day of the project site on a sugar high. Cleaning tiles, cement floors, and our usual lunch classroom seemed to be a bittersweet moment for all of us. 

The maternity centre is finally starting to take shape, with pastel yellow walls and baby blue trimming. Everything was done by hand, from the cement mixing to the mopping. It was truly incredible to see the hard work we put in, even if it pales in comparison to the fundis (workers). 

Though we were exhausted from our last push at the worksite, the last walk back to the institute was still filled with excitement as Ling bought vegetables from the local market and was preparing another delicious meal for us. 

As expected, the dinner was incredibly tasty (curry pork and fresh salad!). It's currently almost nine o'clock and everyone is preparing for bed and the exciting farewell festival that will be held for us tomorrow.
