Lenten thanks 11

Belatedly, my gratitude for yesterday is for the GX volunteers who came to the tea dance and made it the success it was. (We had a great time and I do so want to start dancing again!)

We have nine GX volunteers in Swansea. The scheme is a joint VSO/British Council initiative and involves volunteers from Britain and a third world country working together for 3 months at a time in Britain and the third world country. This year the overseas volunteers are from Zambia. The volunteers live with host families and in this country get £15 a week and in Zambia £3.

It was lovely to have them with us last night and two of them taught us a Zambian dance.

Oh wow! sounds like it was fun.
Isn't it great having other people from a round the World showing us all different cultures and ways.
Much love
