Today we finally got to sleep in and awoke around 830. We ate a lovely breakfast of toast and fruit. Then at 10 we were given a tour of the UAACC (United African Alliance Community Centre) where we're staying. It's a really nice campus, like I really enjoy being here. Soon after that we learned a dance from some of the students at UAACC, it was soooo exhausting, we literally danced for about 3 hours straight in bare feet. My feet felt like they were going to fall off afterwords! After that it was lunch time which again was very tasty. After lunch we relaxed and worked on our computers. Then it was time to present our dance to everyone at UAACC, so we all wore somewhat traditional clothing during our dance. Overall I'm really glad we did the dances, it was so much fun! We also taught the Tanzanian dancers an american dance, the cupid shuffle, hahaha. After I got the chance to call my lovely mother for the 2nd day in a row, I know she absolutely loved to hear from me. After that it was close to dinnertime, we had a lovely dinner of chicken with rice. I basically ate my weight in white rice. After dinner I watched a little Fifa before Pete talked to us. Pete showed us a video about him and the black panthers. It was reallly an amazing video. Pete O'Neal is an amazing guy, he's completely turned his life around in Tanzania and I have the utmost respect for him. After we finished the talk we went to sleep. I slept amazingly well.
We again awoke around 8:30 and had breakfast around 9. After breakfast we all got our cameras and headed to the dining area to learn some photography techniques before heading outside the gates of the compound to take pictures. I took a few nice panoramic pictures, and i learned how to put them all together which really excites me because I can definitely use that in Australia. After taking pictures outside I walked inside and had a lovely conversation with Miss Rachel Owens. After that we downloaded our pictures and worked on picking out our Top 10's from the trip. I'm still not done with that... Then we had a lovely lunch of PIZZA and FRENCH FRIES. Never has such unhealthy food tasted so good... I'm counting down the minutes until I can have a cheeseburger. After lunch we had kind of an open forum with the Tanzanian students where we asked each other questions about the other's country. Most of the questions somehow dealt with money is some fashion. Like is everyone rich in America? How does everyone get so much money in America? ect... I could tell that most of these fallacies were fabricated from Hollywood. There wasn't much truth in their notions. But overall it was a great learning experience for all of us. After the forum we started to work on our projects and other things again, which I am nowhere near finishing at the present time... Right now we are about to sit down to dinner and after that we are presenting our on-assignment projects and having a "party", which at the moment is a giant enigma as to what it truly is. After dinner and the other festivities I'm going to resume packing up my stuff and figuring out what stuff I'm going to leave behind for the children at UAACC.
