Sodwana day 5

Whew time is flying by. we spent one night at Lindy and Pierre. [Lindy is my step-sister who lives in Mfolozi village] Then on to Sodwana to camp with my dad and Fay. Yesterday we just settled in and set up camp. BUT TODAY...well I started weaving my first basket!!! Hoorah!!!! It is so nice to do another form of weaving.... my work is not great but I am very proud...not bad for a amalunga [white person]. The zulus are very eager to teach and hardly charge. Of course I believe that every person is entitled to a just wage. I hope that with my consideration of them that they will continue to teach me tomorrow.
