We found actual alpacas!

GISHWHES has been a tempest that stormed through the lives of my family and friends this week as my sister and I took part in the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has ever seen along with thirteen other team members, most of them residing in the US. It’s been like a gust of fresh air, albeit it a very tiring one!

So, only one more day left.  In a way I’m pleased; I won’t have to run around herding ducks, or commando roll with cupcakes or any of the other crazy things I’ve been doing this week. I’ll have time to spend on those comics and that knitting that’s been lounging neglected on my bedside table. But I’m also quite sad that GISHWHES week will soon be over. It’s been hectic, but enormously fun.

I’m definitely going to join GISHWHES again next year. It’s shown me the enormous kindness and helpfulness that people are capable of. A big thank you to one person in particular, who helped us out despite having had heart surgery earlier this week! And until next year, I’ve been inspired to keep an eye out for other charitable things I can get involved in.

So let’s conquer the world, one act of kindness at a time. 🙂
