How Many Things Can You Use a Khanga For?

I have lots of cool pictures to show you! Since my last blog, lots of things have happened, so I have a lot to tell you!
Yep - it's me!
Over the summer holiday, Kathryn and Arron, our friends from England, came to visit us.

That's us!
We went with them to Tunza beach. I was jumping off the rock making silhouettes in the sunset. Unfortunately one time I jumped off the rock but I landed doing the splits which was painful as you could imagine.

Me jumping over the sunset!

Also while they were here, we (the girls) had a khanga fashion show! A khanga is a piece of colourful cloth with pretty patterns and also a Swahili proverb written on it.

Do you know that khangas have so many uses?

See how many ways you can think of and post them in the comments! Watch the next blog post and we can see how many uses there are!

We also had other visitors, Julian and David come to stay. With them we went to the Serengeti which was amazing! We saw everything except lions which was unusual. We were really excited to see a mother cheetah with her cubs. They were so cute!
Can you see the four cubs?
We stayed overnight at a place called Serengeti Stop-over. On the front of the door of the banda there is a picture of an animal. Amisadai and I were standing outside the door with our new Serengeti T-shirts, trying to be the animal that was on the door!
Pretty fierce
But we can also be sort of normal!
... and crazy
On the way home from the Serengeti, we stopped off on the side of the road for picnic lunch....


...and the cows wanted to join us!

 Here are some more random photos from our summer holiday...

Don't forget to think about what you can use a khanga for (and there's one clue in the picnic photo!)

  1. Brilliant blog Louisa! I used a khanga as ice pack!! We put ice in it to put on my foot when I hurt it on Tunza beach!

  2. I think you could use a Khanga as a mother for baby Roo. Papaxxx

  3. Great blog. We're looking forward to you teaching us so many things! We'll probably need kangas here soon to use as scarfs!
