Day 2 - Finding our feet

Good evening all. We have had a brilliant full first day. It started with a leisurely 9:30am pick up to begin our compound visits. First we headed to Linda's house to pick up some charity bits and to check in with her. Then it was off to visit Ebrima's compound, who is sponsored by Rachel. It was good to finally meet his father.

Next stop was Jonsaba's compound where we were pleased to find her and Mo Lamin both looking well. She was very pleased to receive a new handbag full of goodies and is excited at the prospect of starting her own small business. 
Our third stop was to the Manneh compound which is always a favourite of ours. We were pleased to see them looking well and are sending our best wishes to Mariama who is currently in hospital after a fall.

Next we visited Wandifa's compound briefly to catch up with his lovely children and some other sponsored children, including Aminata who is sponsored by Ellie. She was very proud to show us her excellent school report.

On the way back, we called in at another couple of compounds to collect and deliver letters, before enjoying a quick swim and happy hour cocktail at the hotel. We have just returned from a lovely dinner with Linda and are turning in for the night.

 Seedy comparing heights with Yankuba!

Special shout out to Pippa- we cannot count on two hands how many people send their best wishes to you and Ian. Lots of love X X X
