Yesterday we visited Kangaita village which took about an hour to walk - this is the same walk that the children do daily when at school. Crossing the bridge over the river, we headed firstly for Mary's house. Mary's mother saved for 8 months to get a light bulb so that her children could do their homework. She was very excited having visitors and we were all invited to enter her home...this is just one room with a further one for a bedroom. We then headed to Nancy's home meeting her parents and sister. I have known Nancy for eight years now and she is now twelve years. Walking around the village reminds you of the Middle Ages with wattle & daub buildings...goats nibbling at the sparse grass and children off to the river for water. We passed by the quarry where many of the families work each day though today was Sunday and many would be attending church.
