Last weeks Uprising.

So Swaziland last week, kind of joined the Northern part of Africa, in protests against its leaders. They are calling it an uprising.

The protests were partly successful but the government put up road blocks and had a heavy poilce presence in the main cities including mine. Not much violence but many arrests.

The PC moved me out of town to stay at another PCV's place for Mon-Wed.

If your intersted in reading what is going on here is link to follow

Anyway, they had planned protests in my city but they never happened.

So I got a couple of relaxing days off doing a whole lot of nothing at a farm/orphange called Paster Valley.

And for another link

You can see where I stayed ( By the way, it is a 20 minute walk from my place).
