I asked if he would be working on the deck for the whole time, or whether they changed areas. Dan said:
Same area for the whole two months, unless I apply for a transfer, but I don't think I will. Kitchen would be cool too, you get such LOVELY smells. We were scrubbing the prom deck two days ago, and the smell from the bakery was what made the whole morning really worth it. :-)
Yesterday was my first e-day (On shore work). Digging a huge 4 meter by 4 meter by 3 meter deep hole for a missionary family here, as a water reservoir. Partly also to teach the locals that you can collect water rather than havign to walk 2km each day for water. Very hard work. I'm so tired. Back ache. Today I am supposed to be juggling and perhaps doing poi in an interval in the quayside program. I can barely bend down though if I drop. Hmm.
I asked if he had been able to play his clarinet every day, as he had hoped
yeah. not every day, but about every other day. there are a few places i can practice, but the music room (isolated from the rest) is only free at 6am each morning...
I have been getting up at 6 though pretty much every day. Next week I am on gangway and fireroundsman from 4 til 8 (both am and pm) for the whole week. That will probably be quite tough.
Anyway. Must go. I want to practice the juggling or whatever and do a bit of stretching.
PS - I am remembering to take the anti-malarials.
