Week two, well this was an experience if I’ve ever seen one!
I learnt quite a bit about Fitzroy and the community around it. It was the most fun I’ve had so far! We went around talking to members of the community (e.g Police Officer, John’s friend/ local Cafe Owner) and we got all sorts of views and opinions, but all mostly positive of course, because who doesn’t like they’re own community? There was only ONE negative part about the trail and that was when right at the end John shouted a drink for everyone and then it hit us that to pay for a drink for all 17 of us would be quite a expensive and we all felt guilty for ordering something.
The only other part of the week I remember was the Teamwork skill workshop, where we had to carry each other and the person being carried didn’t feel very safe to say the least. We also had to build a tower out of newspapers which was unfairly won, because we weren’t allowed to tape our tower to the ceiling to keep it steady, but the winning group was allowed to tape it to the ground for exactly that.
All in all, it was a great experience and I’m looking forward to the surprises next week holds.
