After all the packing, list checking and tying of loose ends. We set off for Botswana on friday stopping in Tzaneen for a breakfast meet with some friends. Whilst there a phone call came in and we decided to turn back for a meeting with our partners about mozambique. It was a good thing to do as we had been missing each other for a while, and as we were only an hour down the road it seemed a good idea.
Rayson was delighted to see us come back as he could then go home for the weekend. He just shook his head as he helped me unpack the vehicle we only packed up the day before.
We had a good meeting, and then went to the airstrip to see our friends fly off. As the plane was taxiing down the strip, we noticed that the baggage door was standing open. We shouted and waved but they couldnt hear us so K has to go racing after them down the strip in his Cruiser. Luckily he managed to catch them before take off and we drove on home through the back country happy to be on the ground.
I have recieved the most beautiful award from Tessa of Aerial Armadillo which is self styled to celebrate bloggers building bridges - which is one of the loveliest parts of blogging as it transpires. Tessas artworks are so vibrant and joyful - please do go to her blogsite and have a look. She also writes beautifully, and posts recipes that have me drooling. Fortunately no-one can see. Thank you Tessa - it is a joy to 'know' you.
