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.

Timezones

Togo (in pink on th map) is the most eastern coastal countriey on the GMT timezone, whilst neighbouring Benin (highlighted in red) is the most western coastal country in the next timezone.


Consequently, even though Cotonou and Lome are only 70 miles apart, sunrise is at 6am in Lome whilst it is at 7am in Cotonou. It's quite unsettling to be woken at 6am by bright sunlight. And it gets dark early too - by 6.30pm it's almost totally dark. Huh. Olly
