goodbye to Anne and Trudy

We went off from the hotel about 11 today and visited several compounds to see sponsored children and pay over the sponsorship money. Abdoulie is a very good driver and knows the way in a maze of small backstreets.  The roads were very bumpy but worth it when you meet such lovely families. All welcome you with a handshake, even the small children although some are frightened by our white faces. Wandifa and Yankuba help sort the forms that Pippa has prepared in the UK and they are given to the children for them to write a letter or draw something for their sponsors. The money is counted out and if we have time we talk to the family and play a little with the children.
After this we went to the airport and said goodbye to Anne and Trudy. The plane was in early. Also there was a big gathering of officials to say goodbye to a visiting president. Yesterday being independence day several had come to see the celebrations.
Tomorrow we are visiting kings kid school and then sadly saying goodbye to Chris as he is returning home.
