Now I am very flustered and longing for this journey to be over and seriously thinking we should turn back now and leave the pig behind. Louisa is an emotional wreck, not entirely sure why, but she was definitely not wanting to share the back with this squealing, escaping pig. This time Tim climbed over and helped me (no chance of opening any doors, she'd have been out in a flash!). We got her back in the box and covered the top of the box with a bed and a big black bag (and locked the back door). Sorted ...we thought! Back on the road, and the pig started escaping again. She found a small crack between the bag and the bed and wriggled up. I've really had enough now. Lucy came back this time to help me lean on the beds and bags on the box on the pig. This pig should be in the Olympics, she was jumping with great strength against the box and bags! Amisadai prayed that the pig would go to sleep, and finally her prayer was answered. Peace at last! When we arrived in Magozi almost two hours later, the first priority was to find Ezekiel who had bought the pig from us, and with great relief pass the pig in the box to him!
Other than the pig episode, we had a good time this week in Magozi. It was good to be back with Mama Lucy this time. She hasn't been since she came with the Canada team in March and it was her last opportunity to come with us. With Yuda and Ezekiel, we visited the Anglican pastor and his wife in Kimande, where we are looking forward to starting the next stoves project when we come back in January. We clamoured through the bush to a clay source Mama had found and collected a bucketful for testing.
