January 13th

We are preparing to go on safari for the next couple of days, and I don’t have time to write much. But oh goodness, the stories I have to tell from this crazy week! A preview:

Limbe Country Club

Jack fruit

Breakfast fruit

garden creatures

Tea fields

I see Africa

Golfing with the boys at the Limbe Country Club (including Lucky, the barefoot caddy) :: jackfruit + jungle walks :: mulberries + stocking a Malawian pantry :: snails + nannying :: tea fields :: africa! or gum tree bark. Your choice.

Not photographed: the incident of the rabid dog in the night (aka, the time Matt screamed for guns + ran into the darkness with a loaded shotgun), lightning bug drive, the incident of the wild animal sneaking in the kitchen window, the British tea girls visit, the gorgeous Indian doctor, and Isidingo!

  1. Maybe your latest novel will need a sequel??

  2. I’m so jealous and happy for you at the same time! Sounds like you’re having a great time!

  3. Oh, mulberries! I can taste them in my mouth right now! And so many memories of raising silkworms on mulberry leaves in a shoebox with holes punched in the lid using a pencil!

    And what stories you will have to tell when you have the time!

  4. Isn’t it amazing that a lifetime of adventures can occur in such a short window of living. No doubt each moment will be carried in your heart well past your brain’s memory of the events. Enjoy the spectacular safari. Keep exploring!

  5. All perfect short stories! I can’t wait–I can just TASTE those stories now! Have fun and safari safely!

  6. Your photos and musings from Africa are genuinely filling me with something. I don’t know what exactly, but it is excellent. Perfect accompaniment to my current readings — Half the Sky.
    Be safe and well, and do good.

  7. I love mulberries…..and I can’t wait to hear more!

  8. That all sounds very exciting. I especially like the backward Africa bark and Lucky the barefoot caddy.
