we' re taking off today...from the hill. how exciting is that?
we're headin' south - where you can switch a switch and a light comes on and open a tap and water comes out.....where there are highways and byways....and trains and rollercoasters and zoos and macdonalds or wimpies...i don't know. i hate that plastic pig trotter food but the kids can't wait for it.....and cinemas and mr price (cheap clothes shop).
we're headin' south loaded with coffee and rice and cloth as one does....we're africans....we're only taking hand luggage and a coop of chickens.
we're headin' south and we've been warned that it's freezing. we're sorted with retro corduroys and beanies from mitumba. and one pair of old cowboy boots which fit the girl (if she wears VERY big socks).
we're headin' south and avoiding pea soup dar es salaam. we're going via nairobi...let's see if that's any better....kenya airways...
we're headin' south and we're SO excited i don't care about anything but the sky and being in it.
so best i finish packing. grab the passports out the safe and put this machine inside it. i must kiss the very dry, very cold, powerless ngorobob hill good bye until next time... i shall miss my horse, my dog and my cat...i shall dream of them. i know it... but there ya go.....even the birds fly south in winter time. they know that.
toodely toot y'all! bisous X.X.X. deep sky blue ones x. j
