Our First Weekend in Chintsa East

Though we were some hard workers in Chintsa East, our weekends were planned to be fun!  We spent our first weekend in Chintsa East and most of the time studying.

We did take time to enjoy the beach!  Because our house was beach front, we only lived a short walk to the beach.

While we were at the beach, we saw people beach horse riding.

We thought about trying it, but we never got the chance.  Though, it was fun just watching other people do it.

GREAT time at the beach!



Resources at African Angels

I was most impressed with the resources available to the children at African Angels.

They receive traditional dance lessons from Yiva Mpatana, who lives in Chintsa Village.

They receive yoga lessons called “Wiggles.”

They receive recorder lessons.


They have community volunteers that come in just to spend time with them.
