The day been early with rain waking us before many others were up. The cloudy morning made for comfortable weather for climbing rock walls and building trust on the low ropes course. As the sunshine appeared and the clouds broke up and spread out, we headed out past the camp gates to where a zip line hung high above the bushes surrounding a small pond. The seniors flew through the air first while the juniors played in the mud. Then we switched. The mud was of the dirty variety and only one of us was quick to stick his hands in it. He said he was embracing the African experience - he also claims to be from the bush. Soon everyone had their hands covered and were busy creating creatures from the mud.
As the days progressed and we had more time to spend with our fantastic brethren, we got closer to them all
