Day 6: Tea with the Head

We woke up to a light drizzle and were encouraged by the thought that today would be cooler than yesterday. 

Upon arriving at the work site, with the weather still cool and overcast, we learned that Simon, the head master of Ayalagaya Secondary School, wanted to invite us to have tea and snacks with him and his wife Constancia, who teaches history and English at the school. 

The meal, which included roasted peanuts, was delicious; and the company of Simon and Constancia was very pleasant. 

Then, it was on to the work site. We applied two coats of pale yellow paint to the outside of the maternity ward; and, along with the paid Tanzanian labourers, who seem to never to rest and never to take a break to drink water, we also finished much of the interior flooring. 

Seeing so much work get done was extremely satisfying and made us look forward to the next day, despite our fatigue. Don and Kelly
