...going to the nearby village with our guides/translators...
...then going inside for home-cooked meals like this! Spaghetti bolognese with Xhosa bread (I always went back for seconds...and thirds...)
I slept on the top bunk of an eight-person hut that had geckos crawling out of the ceiling (barely slept at all the first night, and before I went to sleep every night I prayed for no geckos to crawl over my face while I slept. Thankfully, my prayers were answered.)
I even got used to the bathrooms!
But my favorite part was seeing this view from my front door every day.
I'm breaking my week at Mdumbi up into a few posts, since there's so much to talk about! Check back soon for part 2!
