Bright lights bigger city!

Bright lights bigger city! 

Today I woke up and went with some of my unit for a backstage tour of the jamboree main stage where we learnt about the equipment and financial requirement for the performances they deliver. I then headed off to the sustainability treehouse and made an engraved metal tag and learnt about recycling. Then I went to the global development village and took part in an activity by WAGGS about inequality and sustainable lifestyle where living conditions would change and the family would have to continue to produce bracelets to sell. I also made a bee house with the Irish scouts and earned a badge for scouts against killer robots. Afterwards I went to the faith and beliefs zone and was introduced to the Punajbi alphabet, wrote my name in Hebrew on a bookmark, learnt about the history of the hijab. I then headed out to trade once I was back at camp and traded neckers, uniforms, t shirts and badges. The trading there was crazy and is huge with the Americans. For dinner about 15 of our unit went and had dinner with some Oman scouts. We started off by playing some games for us to bond and even tried on some traditional Oman clothing. For dinner was wraps, rice, noodles, prawn dish in sauce with fruit on the side. We then stood around and sang Oman songs and english songs then the rain and lightning began but we continued our singing and had a great night with lots of laughter even though we didn’t speak Arabic.
