Can’t work my iPod

Is it my lack of ability to manage technology? I can’t work out how to add pictures one at a time or label them. You’ll have to just work it all out for yourselves. Here’s the text, pictures to follow!

I’ve been doing some more training with the Malagasy scouts. They have also been doing some filming for a WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) training program.

The work at habitat 1 where we are building the new toilet it coming along nicely. The hole is really deep (last weekend there was a chicken in it, the chicken seems to have been rescued now). Dug by hand (foot?) buy a couple of guys with no shoes and home made spades. The concreting was done a couple of days ago.

I’ve been doing a bit of work looking after the children at Akany Avoko. Sometimes with the babies, sometimes teaching the older girls to knit.

Today I was looking at good places to take the scouts on their three afternoons off. I hope to show them different aspects of life in Madagascar. I’m now shattered and ready for bed and its only half past seven! It’s the same every evening which is one of the reasons these posts are so short and disjointed! More like postcards than blog posts!
