Our plans had to change about our journey to Mosuma because the bus that was due to take us broke down and so we had to go to Mwanza instead. It was a horrible 13 hour journey on a very old (about 30 years) bus. The bus was packed with people and travelled at dangerous speeds on very unmade bumpy roads. Mrs Ward got thrown off the seat and we didn't understand what people were trying to tell us.
About half way the bus had tyre blow out but luckily they had a spare tyre which they changed and we were safe, we also had to change buses - but we don't really know why! However we arrived tired but safe and Theressa, Labans wife was here to meet us.
Yesterday we travelled from Mwanza to Musoma but this was easy as it was only 2 hours. We then travelled on to Kihuzu school and at last met the children. The welcome that we had was amazing there was 16 various important people from the local area, teachers from the other nearby school, village elders, pastors and councilors.
The children put on a magnificient outdoor display of singing, dancing and poetry all to welcome us, we were treated as though we were royalty! You will be able to see the display on video.
Both Mrs Ward and Myself cried with emotion and we felt very humble as the facilities in the school are NONE, 100 children in a classroom no bigger than our classrooms at Porchester.
We will keep in touch as soon as we can ! x
