Well, I mean, it is pretty rainy, windy and blustery generally speaking during the day, although this afternoon we're having really warm sunny weather, but nights are in no way as cold as they were in April. At some point I was even too hot can you believe! So that was a massive relief.
Other than that it's pretty hard core. We are living in community of about 70 people of all ages which always means that difficult stuff and conflict arises.
However the whole point of this camp is that we all practise nvc in community and luckily nvc is a great method to transform conflict. Not easy by anyone's standards but effective and deeply transformative nonetheless. More when I come back on this one.
The facilities here are not great. Stinky toilets, fairly cold showers. Luckily we have our own little portaloo which is awesome as it means I can pee at night without having to go out in the cold night :). The team who organise this though provide lovely food and wonderful nvc services.
Sadly it's not easy for Andy and I to attend many of the sessions because we are with Dylan. We are looking into somehow finding a way that we can be more involved though.
Dylan seems to be having fun, sort of, but when it rains there isn't much to do for him. There is one big communal tent where he and other little ones could go but it's often in use. Also looking in to this one.
He is sleeping really well surprisingly, but he was sick this morning poor thing, he threw up all over the car!! Horrible it was, but he seems a lot better now!
I'm having Internet withdrawal symptoms and I miss my online world!!
Thinking of you all. Hopefully back soon with nice pics!
Internet access sporadic here so apologies if you don't get a reply!
