    The 4th Escouts Blog from the World Jamboree

    Okay its not a video blog, yet.

    I'm puting it down to technical problems, whilst I have shot a couple of video blogs, the lead to connect to USB is a bit damaged, i'll need to see if we can sort it out

    Anyway, Daniel and I are here, and Graham should be here, we'll check sometime soon. The site is is very good condition, and even the area where there has been high traffic in the Adult camp is drying out nicely. The weather is a bit windy and the Adult camp is more exposed than the main site, the main thing is that is has been dry, and only had light drizzle , since we arrived.

    I understand that the UK participants are now mostly here, so we are in line for a bit of a party tonight. It will be the second party so far, as we had a large party last night with the IST (Service Team). Several thousand people doing the congo, is interesting to steward, believe me. The party went really well and was very good natured.

    One thing that does strike you is how varied the people here are. I think its 180 countries that will be represented, that a lot of communication problems to deal with. But in the end we get there. Knecker, Kneckie, Scarf or point to the thing on your kneck, they all get there.

    Anyway as things are being fine tuned, we are just about there, for the rest of the participants to arrive tommorow, or so I believe!!! I think there is 24,000 or thereabouts arriving tommorow!!!!!!

    Anyway, we'll soon find out our shifts, and I'll soon be able to announce the Escouts meetup arrangements.

    On a final note, I have just heard an American say 'Us Americans have taste' , - Absolutely !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
