Brilliant Scouter! Thanks to you for relaying all this info to us and to everybody else involved! :gflower: :gflower: :k :k

I had to read some of it to Rob and just giggled as I pictured all the things they did (the photos really helped here too). Can just imagine that bus trip!! Having occasionally accompanied my kids on school outings, I understand the 'zoning out' bit.

The balance between spending time learning and having fun seems perfect and I am sure that they would love to come back again, as would the helpers!

Thanks Rookie :D and also for helping to turn thepage so I can post my last lot of photos :dance: I took SO many I wanted to share with you all so Im glad you enjoyed them !

So just to finish off, here are a few photos I’d like to share that didn’t really fit in anywhere specific so I thought that they deserve a post by themselves ....

Oom Bassier, Niekus, teacher and mom ( whose names I’ve both forgotten – sorry ) enjoying the boiled eggie and viennas breakfast :whistle:

Image

And then Mariska, Toya, teacher and mom (again) and Henriette on a rare tea/coffee break before the chaos of the Kalahari Konsert .....

Image

Some interesting goggas ... the nymph form of an ant-lion ( I think)

Image

And a grown up one ... I might be wrong as my Afrikaans did let me down on occasion but I think that’s what Henriette said ...

Image

Every time I pulled out my camera there was a frantic scramble to get their photos taken with lots of pushing and shoving and chaos cause they only wanted “certain” friends in the photos with them - the ususal kid thing ... 8)

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Mariska playing games with the kids ...

Image

And to finish off one final Gemsbokplein sunset.

Image

I would really just like to say a MASSIVE thank you to Henriette for everything she did to make this the most incredible experience ever - she did SO much work and the preparation she did for weeks and weeks before was unbelievable - making up 500 packets with mobile goodies in, drawing up the program, inventing board games, getting all the info on the camelthorn tree and laminating photos to go with it, powerpoint presentations, crossword puzzles, the Bingo etc etc ... She really was the star :gflower: and thank you to all of you who enjoyed this with me again through this report - I had fun re-living it with you guys ..

THANK YOU, THANK YOU to KTP, Pick n Pay, Henriette, Mariska, Toya, Jannie Bok and Niekus, Bassier, all the teachers I met and most of all to the amazing kids who taught me so much and made me laugh till I hurt - it really was the most amazing adventure !!

Thanks Scouter. It's something that many of us, much as we love KTP and its peoples, will never experience — except thanks to you! :gflower: :gflower: :gflower:
