    I’ve been reasing all your blogs and it sounds as if you’re all having an amazing time. It looks fabulous up there and the it sounds as if spending time so close to nature is a life changing experience.
    I woke up today to news of flooding accross east, central and west Africa – families displaced, crops and infrastructure destroyed in Uganda, Mali and Northern Ghana. Another example of extreme weather. Something has to give. Have a wonderful time on your travels.
