After a cold shower had dinner in camp of sliced potatoes, vegetables and chicken. Moses and the kitchen team sang a song and bought out a 'honeymoon' cake for Matt and I. We sat around the campfire and bed by 9pm
The chef delivering me a cake! The team behind are singing and playing on pots and pans!
Our lovely cake - a great suprise. I reckon Bob wants a bit though!

Awoken at 1.30am as people had ants in their tents! Christina and Michelle got it the worse and Christina bitten all over. Moses and team poured ash on the nests and moved our tent and another to a new spot. Managed to go back to sleep as so tired and then up at 5.30am!
