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.

Hurricane

(It's a lazy Sunday morning with plenty of time for blogging, hence this endless dribble whilst Sally makes Valentine cards with the kids before we go to church). Last night we had a magnificent African rainstorm (almost a hurricane, in fact, I reckon). Thunder, lightning and near horizontal winds drove torrential rain hour after hour. It was a very wet night for those living ashore. It rained nearly all night, and this morning it is still overcast and cool and the dock stinks of rotting and fermenting grain (again). There are massive rats and cockroaches here, who live on the stuff! Anyway...Olly

Nice use of the word 'reckon' that and the mention of rats and cockroaches reminded me of where I grew up in the south!
