I have given you Wendy's blog link because she covers most of the things we did. Thanks Wend!
I will attempt to share my experiences in pictures. The emotions which go with the pics make it hard for me to explain the precious times I had. Christmas was heaven sent as Gemma and I connected and shared three whole days together. Meg and George were with us as well as an unending stream of my dear friends from here in Tanzania. We all decided that Zanzibar was the place to be for Xmas/New Year.
I was so happy to have had my two lives entwined for a few brief, unforgetable days
