A day away – Malealea

Last week we had two volunteers come for two weeks from Belgium.  They are Americans living there.  During their one weekend here, they wanted to go see as much as possible.  So, on Saturday we decided to go to Malealea.

In the morning, everyone else decided to go pony trekking and I stayed back at the lodge.  I enjoyed my time sitting on the porch in a hammock swing, reading my Bible, and spending time with God.  It was such a blessing to get some down time.

After they got back, we ate lunch at the lodge and then went on a village tour.  A local guide took us on a tour through the surrounding villages and we got to see daily life for people in that area.

Most people out of the big cities do not have indoor plumbing, they have to use a drop toilet (out house).

Rondavels are traditional houses in Basotho culture and below you will see some of the houses from the village.

In one of the neighboring villages, we saw the different teams playing soccer with each other.  Many people were enjoying watching the games on a cool Saturday afternoon.

We also got to see the museum up there.  There is a gorgeous view from there.
