I'm back!

I arrived back in Ukarumpa on Wednesday and have been quite busy getting settled back in and catching up with everything. We had a good 7 weeks in the village, but it's also good to be back now with modern comforts too.

I have so many stories to tell, so I'm planning on putting up new blog posts every couple of days so that you can catch up with it all before my next adventure (details of that to come).

We stayed in two villages during our time in the Sos Kundi area: 'Mangijangut' for two weeks, and 'Chikinumbu' for the rest of the time. We had some interesting bathing experiences, we actually had four different ways of bathing. So stay tuned to hear about them!

Also we had quite a variety of different meats that we ate occasionally. When we stayed in Mangijangut village we didn't carry our food with us, so we were eating local food every day there. The regular everyday food that we ate there was pumpkin, sago and fish. I'll tell you more about the different foods that we had in some later blog posts.

Here are some photos of how we started our journey…

Nice view on the way:

This is us coming in to land. It is flat, flat country where we were - no mountains to look up at.
