Today we started with a big breakfast at 8:30am. After that we had a camera workshop and we were assigned into groups,the groups were given tasks of which they were to perform while in the city. Each group was given some amount of money to use for lunch while in the city with cameras to use for filming their tasks.
Later, when each group was back, we met in one of the classes and we were taught how to create and edit the films we made. We later went for a short break . Then, each group was given a laptop to edit their films together.
After each group was done editing they went out for a short break and later met in the dining hall where we ate Lasagne. After having supper we all met in one of the classes where each group presented their films to the rest of the group.
Today we woke up at 6 o ‘clock in the morning, it rained during the night.
It was 28°c around here, where by it was really cold for some people i.e. the Kenyans but as for the Germans it was kind of normal for them. We all then headed to the dining hall so that we could take our breakfast which was Mandazi ,smokies and tea. The Germans really find the mandazi’s tasty and they really do enjoy them. Mandazi is a swahili delicacy which is almost similar to “Schmalzkuchen”. After the breakfast,we headed back for a Meeting in the Lulu high. The group was headed by Ecki where he told us about the program. After that, we were taught how to edit videos. This activity was carried out by Peter. After this we were then released for lunch. After lunch, we were supposed to go to the beach but unfortunately due to the weather, we had to remain in the school. We did voluntary work in the school where we had the clean up activity. After that, we were given free time where people did different activities. We later met in the dining hall for supper and after that had separate meetings. After the meetings, we went back to the dorms and the day was over but it was really hectic when we were in the dorms since we were preparing for the next day.
In the morning we had tea and maandazis. This is a type of doughnut which tastes like cake. Afterwards we were grouped into 5 groups and given tasks which we had to film and to present in the evening. Outside the gate there were Tuk Tuks waiting for us. These are three-legged open cars which are used like taxis. Normally a Tuk Tuk is meant for three passengers but six people boarded each Tuk Tuk.The ride was very special especially for the Germans because it was their first time and everything was new for them.
Our first task was to buy simcards for the germans . The simcards were to be bought at Nakumatt supermarket in the Safaricom shop.They were then registered using their passports for them to recieve simcards. They then called Ecki and the first task was complete.
Our second task was to take a film of a statue near Nakumatt. It was a special statue because it was made of flip-flops.
The third task was to go to the beach. We had to film the name of the beach and we also enjoyed the view of white sands and a very clear blue ocean.
For our fourth task we had to interview a business man about human rights.
At the end we drove with a Tuk Tuk to the Ibiza market for our last task. Each group bought different fruits which they brought back to school. All the tasks were to be completed and everybody was to be in school before twelve pm.
For lunch we had Ugali, Cabbage and meat stew. Then we had a fruit salad from the fruits that we had bought.
In the afternoon we edited our films for the presentation in the evening.
For dinner we had rice with beans. After that we watched the films from each group. It was a very great day and we had a lot of fun.
