A little bit of news

Just to report, now that Mollys parents know, we had a Malaria scare in the group.Poor Molly was carted off to hospital to have a blood test, but thankfully she is fine and is on antibiotics for a gland thing, she is feeling so much better today. Leah had her ankle checked while she was there too, just soft tissue damage, she is very proud of her x-rays though! Harry has mammouth blisters so can't do too much walking but they are all in good spirits.
We have a car coming at 8am tomorrow to take us back up in the hills, we will be glad to be away from the fumes of the motorbikes. We will join them for lunch and then walk 8km's all together so we arrive at the project site as one. Those who are unable to walk will go by motorbike!
 I have just discovered that my trek shirt is still muddy even though I have scrubbed it several times since sliding in the mud like a break dancer last Thursday, so it was back in bath for that. I can't start the project muddy now can I! I would also like to report that I have really nice nails right now!!! They will all be gone by Friday.
It will all be quiet on here until next Thursday when we return. I want you, and everyone you know, to check the blog next Thursday as Kilpatrick and Weeksey have a bet on!!
Lots of love
Biz and Alice xx

    You are all absolutely amazing - 2 more school days left here and when I stop at the end of what I believe to be a hard days work and think about what you guys are up to - well it puts it into perspective! This blog has been just great to read each night - huge thanks to Biz and Alice for keeping us informed - great to hear from Weeksey today too! Hope the project gives you a chance to take a breather from walking, mend some blisters and enjoy a new challenge. We will all be online next Thursday to hear the new stories - until then look after each other.

    Good morning Vietnam, as Pink Floyd sang on one of their Obscured by the Clouds tracks "Come on my friends let's make for the hills, they say there's gold and we're looking for thrills". Gold,. not in a literal sense maybe.
    Keep on keeping on people you're making great progress.

    Love + respect
