warm rain and rastas
08.06.2010 31 °C
I have posted some videos of the monsoon ... having lots of fab comments thanks to all for keeping in touch..unsure if the videos are coming through can someone let me know?? The rains are really plunging down... more so than Buxton... but for shorter spells .... Tom has just had a wonderfull shower in the rain..today..
I have had my hair cornweaved and rastaerfied... so now look like an official middle aged hippy trying to recapture something.. it took 3.5 hs! - the process was tortuoeus ... involving candles and boiling water .. but it is cooler.. not in the hey man sense... but as opposed to hot...
We have met so many interesting travellers A british couple JANE AND David are spening 6 years travelling the world..I am guessing they are a similar age to me ... driven down from Birminham in an all singing all dancing landrover .. they have many tales to tell and have been on the road for 8 months.. I took JANE TO A LOCAL HOSPITAL WHERE THE LAST 2 SETS OF SCALES HAVE BEEN GIVEN OUT THIS MORNING. IT is basically a community health clinic run by Nurses and midwives and they treat malaria patients alongside women delivering... I guess its the local version of the cottage hospital in Buxton.. without the malaria...
Off to the slave castles tomorrow.... then a slow pack as we head off and next week we will be in South Africa for the world cup .... waving our Ghana flag !!
Love to all --
Lesley and Tom
