Boxing Day Walks
Every morning found Lucy doing the washing up from the night before – it can’t be done in the evening because there is no light. It’s a careful process as all water has to be carried from the spring, so you don’t waste it.
The cattle stay in overnight.
Our car by the sitting room. (OK, this morning we did drive the car to church because we were so late, with lots of people in the back!)
Meld found my bed jumping – and this was who was in it!
Lucy’s parents took us on a tour of their shamba. The maize is growing well.
Mike explains what they are growing.
Lucy’s mum checks some low-hanging pawpaws.
Afterwards we walked to Lucy’s uncle and aunt’s for lunch and a tour of their shamba.This is the store.
Checking the oranges.
Passion flowers – there were fruit too.
Carrying home the fruit we’d collected.
Time to say farewell.
Mivumoni is named for the Mivuma trees which grow here/
We passed one of the boreholes that we helped to refurbish a few years ago, still working.
Back in Mivumoni, we went for a drink with Mike and meet some of his work colleagues and other villagers.

We were invited to supper with the St Joseph Sisters, who made us very welcome. Seminarian Gabriel came along too.
