Orchid in a box

We took over the library for one of our sessions and did orchid in a box. Orchid in a box is when we paired the students up and gave one person a picture of an orchid and the other colouring pencils and paper. They had to describe the orchid for there partner to draw. Then we taught them orchid anatomy and got them to swap over and do the same again but hopefully with better pictures as they understand the anatomy of an orchid and can describe the orchid better.



Christmas in Nyungwe

Over christmas we also got to visit Nyungwe.  This time we saw orchids and not many animals.  Maybe we are louder on foot than in a car, or maybe the animals are just smaller in Nyungwe.  We did 2 different trails, Igishigishigi and of course Kamiranzovu swamp trail.  With the Igishigishigi trail we also did the canopy walkway about 80m above the forest floor.  It gave us amazing views.
