Making Mud Houses and A Shadow Play

When we were in Magozi last week, we were working on our neighbours house. Everyone is getting their houses ready for the rains, putting more straw and mud on the roof, or batty (which is a tin roof). We were helping on the walls. It is really fun and very dirty throwing the mud on the side of the house.

When we got back to Iringa, we had Thanksgiving! After dinner, we did our Shadow Puppet show "The Story of Kuang-li" for Andy and Angela and Marc. Watch it here!

And Advent has started! Every day we do our big advent calendar and read from our special advent book. We drew 25 lines on a candle which we light every night. We are making an advent candle wreath. We have made some light window decorations as well. And the best thing about Dec 1st was a big surprise of lots of Christmas parcels at the post office! We couldn't even carry them all!

All the bunnies are well.


  1. Amazing! I've already watched twice. The puppets were very well constructed. It was easy to keep track of each character, and the dragon was suitably frightful! The script was read clearly, each word well enunciated. When my grandchildren arrive next week from Beijing, China, I will show this to them. Well done, Amisadai and Louisa.

  2. Oh that is fantastic!!!! I love it!!
    Great job Girls!!!

  3. The puppet show is absolutely brilliant. You are both so clever and have so many skills. One day you are putting mud on the houses in Magozi and the next you are making puppet shows. We are so proud of you. Lots of love, Grandma & Grandad XX

  4. I really enjoyed watching the puppet play. The puppets were beautifully made and you told the story really well. I thought that the bit where the dragon ate the child was rather scary! xx
