Buddy home visit and rain forest exploration trip

Partner Schools Worldwide > Sir William Perkins School and Bantuma JHS > Buddy home visit and rain forest exploration trip

Day 4
After completing our new and usual morning routine, we headed down to Bantuma school to meet our buddies and go round to their houses. We began walking through town and visiting houses, one-by-one. This was a very touching experience for most people, because it showed us reality in certain circumstances around the world, and in person. All the family members were so kind and genuine. They embraced us as if we were their own and blessed us in their “Fante” language. During this, it gave us time to reflect on how we should be as grateful and proud as them, regardless of what they have or don’t. It was a real eye opener for most of the girls and gave us a new mindset to view from. As we were the smallest group, we finished quickly and headed to the coco farm. The farm was really interesting and the owners grandson showed us the cocoa fruit and the cocoa beans within it. We even got to try the white gooey substance it is coated in. It tasted fruity but sour and after biting into the inedible bean, we saw the inside was purple!
Swiftly after that we were on the coach to “Kakum National Park”. We also had a pit stop at a food garage where we all indulged on freezing ice cream and soft drinks! Once we reached the park, we went on the 7 famous rope bridges! The experience was incredible especially because we got to share the wonderful view with our buddies. Sadly, after that the buddies had to leave and we were settling for dinner. We had a lovely curry and rice around a huge bonfire and also celebrated Grace’s birthday! After eating we got ready for bed; for some of us that was inside a treehouse , and others it was in tents on the ground floor. We then rested calmly in to the tunes of mother nature.
