16th October 2011

Yes, we're back on the internet....for now at least. The internet has been down for a couple of days here and then the electricity went off last night as well so we were feeling a little isolated.
Arrived safely in Gimbie after a long 10-hour bumpy drive. Our house is comfortable and we have a very nive verander that looks out on some banana trees. In fact, it looked like we were in a rain forrest this morning as we were in the middle of a low cloud.

We seem to have chickens, and worse still, a very noisey cockerell squatting in our garden. So every morning, we are woken up firstly at around 4.30 by the Orthodox priest calling the whole town to prayer and then by the cock a doodle doo at around 5am. We are plotting a way to resolve this but it may take time. I'm not sure whether a share of the eggs is worth it for all the early wake up calls.

Today most of the staff from Maternity Worldwide, including us, went to one of the programme manager's wedding. It was a lot of fun and much dancing and singing as the groom was being prepared for the wedding. The ceremony was in the Adventist church at the bottom of the driveway to the hospital and then we all went 50Km down the road for the reception. Quite how we got 12 people into the MW Landcruiser, I'll never know. Very cosy indeed.

If any of my photos and movie clips are interesting, I shall pot them next time.....
