We hope to meet the school children in the village of Imbafi a short drive from the campsite where will be be living for the next few days. I cut some white matte paper for sample printing from a large roll we have here at the Arusha Masai Cafe. The children's work will be printed on the hand made papers.
We found some water based block printing paint -a similar colour to the rock paintings. We made a back up plan for paint brushes, made by splitting normal house paint brushes into smaller pieces and attached them to sticks - cool idea as one brush yielded about 8 separate smaller ones!
Before we left we got a call from the International School saying they would like to meet us on Tuesday 14 in the morning. Perfect.

Picking up some provisions, building materials, bags of lime and strips of iron the Land Rover was now fully laden and we headed off for the last 80km journey to the campsite.

Tomorrow we will drive down to the village and meet the students for the first of the Rock Art workshops. At the moment we don't know how many there will be or what we will do exactly. For now I'm ready for bed.
|Yep - couldn't sleep so I wrote notes and took bedtime photos!|
