At this moment in time these should be the latest presents for the children of Calheta though by having perused the list of children we shall be taking something to I have realised we are still far from having collected them all. I do sincerely hope we'll be able to finish tagging and packing them all prior to flying there.
My suitcase is full, so I have been handing the latest presents to the other colleagues who shall be flying with me this time.

Some children seem to be getting more than others, the reason being that those will have their birthdays soon and the "godparents" have decided to include the birthday presents as well, once the underlying idea is to have them get basically the same, without there being too many differences.
I haven't been able to take too many books lately because of weight restrictions, but because there will be five of us travelling this time I'll risk taking quite a few. Not only don't the children have easy access to story books, but are also willing to develop their Portuguese reading capabilities ...
