Mrithri and Group 13

  “Shit! Someone help me out, please.” My right foot feels like it is being sucked through a straw. Thick mud is gripping it tight and the small sapling I grabbed hold of broke off at its base. No help there then. “Jo, what the hell happened?” Philip stopped laughing when the mud-ball I threw… Continue reading Mrithri and Group 13

The Graveyard

It’s early. Twenty folk of various ages and nationalities, one broken orange Bedford truck and trailer, a cattle track, and a graveyard in Tanzania are my companions. It’s hot in or out of the sun.

On A Good Day

Yesterday I took my two students from Hong Kong with me...and Chevvy...to Waihi Beach for a walk. The girls had fun...writing their Chinese names in the sand. Which Chevvy promptly demolished with her footprints as she ran rampant. Not really great weather for it. But others were out too...having a game of soccer.

And if you are allergic to him, it's not good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lkjxjDZiI8 Like I have said a million times...almost everything in Australia wants to kill you !!! Why do you think I moved to New Zealand ! Here except for the White tail… Continue reading In Australia even the ants are dangerous

After the storm

On the Thursday before Good Friday, what was supposed to be 'a bit of rain' hit parts of New Zealand. Katikati got its fair share. I am not complaining though. One friend in Matamata made the news. Her roof and ceiling blew off and the damage to her home is substantial. Over at Mount Maunganui… Continue reading After the storm
