Scraping, scrubbing and brushing

We spent Friday beginning to clean up the school house.

I scraped paint, left behind by some previous dodgy painters, off the kitchen and bathroom tiles with a razor blade. It was slow going.

Stephanie scrubbed floors and then began polishing them with wax. Tanzanians are in love with red colouring in their concrete floors, and there is a red wax that is sold to give them a nice shine.

Andrew spent the day brushing the rust and flaky paint off the front gates, ready for a new coat of paint.


  1. No wonder Andrew looked so happy in the watering hole

  2. So much work before you even get teaching!
