My luxurious camp :)

Just a brief update, I am having a good time even though we are working hard and long days. My camp bed is the best, such luxury

and yes it is luxury and not sarcasm.

My flatmate

My group on a little walkie (26km) with heavy bags

I have also found out what my community project is, it is a water sanitation project building two toilet and shower units for a boarding school for poor children

Above a is picture of part of the school, if we get time over we might build a playground and dig and plant a small vegetable garden for them.

For brief news of my team and my colleagues teams check this blog http://raleighindia.blogspot.com/

So this is it for a while!

Last day in London for a while, tomorrow morning I’m flying off to India for 8 weeks of charity work. I will probably not have any internet access during this time (or mobile or anything else :s ) but if I get close to a computer with internet I will try to write a quick update.

In the mean time you can follow my expedition and maybe even spot me here http://www.raleighinternational.org/expedition-blogs just scroll down to the bottom of the page to read the India blog.

See you all when I get back and thanks to all of you that turned up to the pub on Friday.

Also to any would be thief;
1. I have absolutely nothing worth of stealing in my flat, I am sooo not materialistic and I certainly have no money…if you do decide to break in let me know if you find something 😉
2. Actually don’t bother breaking in because my flat (read shoebox) won’t be empty, a friend will live in it the whole time.

To a certain other person;
1. My internet duties in moderating a certain forum will go on as I am only 1 out of 7 people moderating it…although I get blamed for 100% of the removals.

Midsummer was Fab!

For once we had the weather on our side, otherwise rain and cold weather is almost part of Midsummer eve festivities. I had a fantastic time with my nearest and dearest friends, we didn’t want to leave and stayed on way past the sun gone down. Wasn’t in bed until 4ish in the morning. The picnic food was fantastic, we had VĂ€sterbottenpaj, SmörgĂ„stĂ„rta, pickled herring, potatoe salad, pasta salad, smoked, grilled and gravad salmon, knĂ€ckebröd, cheese, meatballs, new potatoes with sour cream and chive sauce, strawberries and cream and much more. Midsummer like it should be in other words.

Hyde Park was full of picnicing Swedes

I tried to take photos of all my friends at our picnic corner but I didn’t fit us all in even though I took TWO pictures.

Of course we had the Little Frog dance around the Maypole, bet a few eyebrows were raised by the none Swedes in the park 😉
