Throughout the week the kindness and generosity of the locals became even more evident. At school, Arivella in class P6 supplied me with peanuts (or G nuts as they’re called here) and every day children would give us passion fruits or avocadoes from their lunch. Even though we were fed at school (porridge at break time, the obligatory matoke, posho and beans at lunch), it seemed impolite to turn down their gifts. It must be made clear how little these people have, so the fact that they were so generous was even more remarkable. The kindness and warmth of the people in this country is something I will never forget.
