Hello friends and readers. Just a quick note to say we've been without internet at the center for almost two weeks now. That's why you haven't heard from me lately. I'm in the city now at a cafe that offers internet, trying to catch up on emails.
*School holidays last week equaled three trips on the ferry over the river; one hysterical child causing the ferry to be turned back and all of us ushered off; 31 soft drinks; three trips to the airport and 31 ice cream cones!
*Mumps were confined to the original three boys and none of them got it too badly.
*Still no ATM card (and thus no cash) and a credit card frequently declined as the fraud alert kicks in. Drat those thieves who stole my purse!
*Temporary passport may lead to a new DIRE soon - let's hope!
*New lock system for the car has already broken. And been repaired again. At least some things happen fast here in Africa!
*Getting a lot of reading, cooking and exercising done without the internet. Hmmm, could get used to that actually!
See you around again sometime!
