Pageant Trip Feb 2009

Saturday 14th February

Today was a great day for us as we got to meet all of our sponsored children. For the Groves family we met Fatou, Mo Lamin, Lamin and Ebrima, who is sponsored by my granddad. Anne also met the girl she sponsors who is called Binta. Yankuba organised the whole day wonderfully and we all went to the market where the kids bought gifts with the money we gave them. Then we had a lovely lunch at Billy's and went up The Arch for the first time. For those of you who haven't been to The Gambia, The Arch (which probably has a proper name) is the tallest building in The Gambia. A lot of the kids had never been up it so it was a great experience for them too. It took all of our energy to stop Ian Talibo and Mo Lamin falling over the railing, so keen were they to see down.

This evening, we went to the buffet at the Indian restaurant in the main touristy bit of the Gambia, which served very nice food.
