This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Bonfire Night


Tonight us Brits had Bonfire Night celebrations on the dock. We lit a small bonfire and pretended we had fireworks (by all going "ahhh" and "weee" whilst looking and pointing up into the night sky), and drank hot chocolate, ate Bonfire Toffee and Parkin Cake and roasted marshmallows...some crazy folk even came wrapped up in hats and gloves and scarves, even though it was about 30 degrees. We finished with a Ceilidh courtesy of our three Scottish crewmates. Crew from other nationalities standing nearby clearly thought we were daft. Photo of the five of us warming our hands over the fire. Olly

Great you folks got to do something for Guy Fawkes night. Alas, we don't have space for a bonfire, and you can't get fireworks in Cotonou until late December!! Sounds like the weather's as warm there as here - roll on the Harmattan!
