Brave the Breast Walk

So post Jazz night it was up EARLY to do a walk for breast cancer charity called Brave the Breast.

It is a 10k hike up to the top of a highest peak in the Ezulweni Valley (not Swaziland). Basically 5k up 5 down.

Several of the PC staff did the hike including the Country Director's family. One other PCV did the hike with me and at the top it was a wonderful view and breeze.

By the way Ezulweni Valley is the tourist area with the only movie theater in teh country, lots of good resturants that serve familiar food (I am not a fan of Swazi food) and if your ever visiting there is lots of great things to see & do but its not a place to come to for the food.

Over between the fri night music & Sat walk, some good food. It was a much needed "vacation" from my site.

And then I rushed back on Saturday night so I could make the 8am Sunday community meeting for my Social Center project.
