This morning, we were up bright and early, 6:30 to shower before breakfast at 7:30. I went ahead and took a shower. 5 minutes later, Scott attempted to shower, only to find no water at all. The story was repeated at breakfast as we had no water throughout the building. Kwesi talked to the manager, offering an ultimatum that if things didn’t improve, we would start looking for a new place to stay. We will see if that helps.
After breakfast, we loaded up our luggage that had the supplies we brought with and headed to the school to start sorting. Just about the time we were done sorting at the school, the kids got a recess and suddenly, we were the center of attention. Of the 350 kids at the school, I am guessing that 150 came over to swarm us, have their pictures taken, steal my hat, etc. It was a little overwhelming but still fun to see all the kids so excited.
After their recess, it was time to get started painting. We were tackling the computer room first, which had one wall painted already. All 4 walls were going to get painted, so one group tackled the painted wall, while the rest of us took the other three. It was then we found out that the paint needed to be watered down before painting. We found out later in the afternoon, it was because we would normally whitewash the wall so it would take a coat of paint better, but there wasn’t any available at the store. That being said, the paint was all so watered down, we started calling it waint instead
