Communicating.......Visa......Sauti za Basara.....farewells.......

Form 1: Writing a friendly, newsy letter.....This is harder than it sounds when you want to put all your thoughts on paper but it's too hard to find the English words to say them! I could easily put myself in their shoes and reverse the situation: Fran writing her blog in Kiswahili...!!!? Not yet.... but maybe I could use some words and I could construct some sentences ......
Oh how the girls struggled to write their meaningful newsy letters. I can only hope that their detail increases as their vocab does and that they begin to enjoy this wonderful means of communication! Sponsors and friends out there....please be patient. We are all trying to involve you in our world!

A trip to Dar to sort out my visa.....Yes, it is still:  "What Visa?....as I don't have one"
mmmmmmmmmmmmmm! ???????
Oh well.....
I did get to stay with Tracey and Bruce and experience their little home, less the familiar family d├ęcor which was packed into suitcases, as it was their 2nd last night in Dar before leaving for home to reunite with Sadie and Belle in Vancouver.
Dylan was actually staying with Bruce's parents in Vancouver the night before Tracey and Bruce were due home! His journey home from the snow season in Big White required a sleep over in Vancouver so it was easy to connect them all. It was great Dyl would meet Jack and Nancy as I had met them here in Dar at Xmas and experienced what lovely, interesting people they are.....and he would meet Sadie and Belle as well! International friends unite!
ASANTE SANA JACK AND NANCY FOR HOSTING MY BOY....
We are all very happy that it was able to happen.
I made a daring trip to Zanzibar to experience Sauti za Basara 2011 .....I successfully sneaked through customs ...(nearly getting detained on the way back though!)  and celebrated this with a few Tusker baridi sana (some of them were actually cold!) as we all danced our way through this amazing African Music festival.....



VSO Vols reunited.....Alex and Lachy shared.....
Farewells are too hard.
Kwa heri Alex and Lachy
Kwe heri Tracey and Bruce.
