I hope they all know how much we appreciate that! But what a difference there is in feeding us: some women put the food into the room and leave before we turn up; we don’t even get a chance to see and thank them in person. Others just sneak in and out while we are there, trying hard not to be seen or not to cause any disruption. They cannot be convinced to stay for the meal or even for a few minutes, it’s a pity.
And then there are the women who prepare the delicacies at home to bring to us and join us for dinner and a short time after (because we tend to go to bed early) wash up the dishes. Let’s not forget the men who displayed their BBQ talents for us. My personal favourite is when we have the company of these wonderful locals. However, after a day of walking, I am so grateful for every bite that appears in front of me without any of my doing. Without the support of all these people our footprintsforpeace would be a lot more demanding. Thanks, thanks, thanks to all of you!!!
