WonderfulSunday!

by Adam

The plan was to meet at the bus stop at 6:15am, so after getting ready, I went to the western canteen for breakfast.  I got there at 5:55am, and it was to open at 6am.  There were a few other people waiting outside there, but when they saw me coming, one was point away and talking to me in French, telling me that I’m Chinese and I shouldn’t be there.  After showing him my badge and telling him and his mates that I usually dine at the western canteen, they were ok.  When going in, he was infront of me, and his badge didn’t let him in at the turnstile.  I wanted to tell him that he wasn’t allowed in… ha ha.  I controlled myself, didn’t want to get in any trouble.

I rushed 2 croissants and 3 pain au chocolat into my mouth and went to get my stuff.

I was in the car with Thomas, Reden and Jonathan.  First we went to buy some supplies at Kone.  When we were there, a guy on a bicycle asked a few questions and I think he wanted to sell beer.  Then some people came and asked if I was Korean and tried to hand me a magazine, which when I realised “the Watchtower”, I said no Smile

When the busload of people from site came, they ran into the store.

We headed off to Poindimie, it was for Ola’s birthday.  It was a windy road.

Arrived there and spent an hour trying to get a fire going (all the wood there was damp).

Jonathan was fishing.

After snorkelling went back to where we were and had noodles.

As beer isn’t allowed on site, we had to finish it first.

Then packed up and headed back.

On the way back, we stopped at a point with rocks and waterfall.  It was nice.

Then stopped at the petrol station before arriving back and had some icecream.

Got back to my room, had a quick shower, then had dinner.

What a great day!

It’s time to sleep now!  Goodnight!
