Hey All, Aliesha & Asia here!!
It is with a heavy heart that we are writing this blog on our last night here at the magical place that is Butterfly Space! This place has not only captured our hearts, but also our minds! You hear about these places that affect you in ways you didn’t think possible, they make you think about life and what’s really important; and Butterfly Space along with Alice and her girls are that place!
We have had the most magical week teaching at Stepping Stones building bonds with children aged 5-15; providing fun and laughter at Youth Club as well as seeing the amazing work the local Disability Group provide; and how different it is for women having children over here than back home! None of these things will ever be forgotten; and have become such a deep part of us.
After a long week we were rewarded with a wonderful boat ride to a local beach by Khumbo! Once arriving at the local beach there was some sun bathing, swimming in the lovely clear lake and beach volley ball. We then left the beach and got the chance to experience an eagle dive down and snatch a fish that we had thrown over board – so majestic! This evening the team shall be sorting out cases, enjoying Chilli Con Carne for our last dinner and then some live entertainment!!
Saying goodbye to the place we have called ‘Home’ for the past week is going to one of the hardest things I think we have all done in a long time; and will not be without tears and sadness, but also remembering a week full of laughter, fun, friendships, and making some incredible memories and relationships!
Butterfly Space is truly magical; and I don’t think it’s the last time any of us will be here! ?
Tomorrow we begin the long journey (10hrs) down to Lilongwe to visit the Safari Park and finish our trip seeing some of the beautiful animals!
We are missing you all so much and can’t wait for hugs and to tell you all about our travels! Thank you for your continued messages of support and love; you have made being away from home a lot easier for us all!
Love Aliesha & Asia ?xxx
P.s. We are sorry for the lack of photos; our signal hasn’t been strong enough! We are hoping to be able to post some when we get to the Safari Lodge! Xxx
