And so to our final day at DCS. For myself, having three lessons to teach became an opportunity to say goodbye to the learners I had taught over the past three months, and it was a gentle and relaxed day. Val had a less comfortable time, having to fight with IT, but she was still able to enjoy most of it.
In no particular order, it was:
- Me leading morning prayers
- Teaching, with spirited playing of the “Who killed King John?” game, and some magnificent improvisations
- Handing out presents to the laundry ladies, the security guys, the kitchen staff, and the maintenance team
- A short outdoor concert given by the choir in our honour
- A low-key but most enjoyable farewell braai
- A trip to the astonishing Zebra Bar in Maboneng, including me playing an intense game of chess against Swazi, the owner. (I lost, but narrowly.)
And so we finish our stay, and with it comes the end of our daily blogs. We shall record the last three weeks of our trip, but sporadically. We hope it has proved (almost) as enjoyable an adventure for you as for us. Au revoir.
