Shaurumoyo – at last

Today we got to visit the last of Joe’s mass centres, in a school at Shaurumoyo at the northern end of the parish.

There are huge baobab trees all around.

After Mass we visited a nearby family for Joe to bless their new baby.

Back at Kikambala, we had lunch, Tusker and a snooze, then helped Teddy preparing mchicha (a kind of greens).

A Couple More Days

Friday, a day for massage, laundry and visitors! In the afternoon, Joe came and drove us to Chalets Beach for a quick swim and soda. Next to the beach are the Cowrie Shell Apartments: you can almost see the coloured glass in the link between the two blocks.

01

Joe dropped us in Bushy and we¬†picked up vegetables before walking home. We met Joe’s sister Sidi on the way an she took us to see her home/.

02

Jacob brought his girlfriend Lydia home, and on Saturday morning they looked smart for the children’s birthday party.

After a morning of websites, we went up to Kikambala with Maggy and had a drink at Sun’n’Sand Hotel.

05

The tide was far out when we arrived so we didn’t swim, but the view was nice.

In the evening we went to a house mass with some of Joe’s parishioners, their children and grandchildren, followed by supper.
