View from the veranda where the cats spend all day on the bed with the tiger. The criss-cross pattern is the gauze netting to strung across fine netting which keeps out the mosquitoes and other insects
It's been raining since we arrived back home in Mwadui last Wednesday. Not just drizzling, mizzles. Pouring torrents of water caused by tropical storms. Of course, the power goes out daily for as longs as three - five hours at a time. Grant told me earlier that we have a brand new generator and it should be connected/installed within the next week. Hurray! Not only will the Guest House have alternative power when necessary, because the generator is large enough, I won't have to go without blow-drying my hair when the national grid lets us down!
Meanwhile it's a quagmire out there. It's also difficult to drum up enthusiasm from the gate guards and garden staff. Just visible inside the little tin hut against the fence, is Askari Edward's leg jammed up against the door while he watched the rain
It's raining all over, even at the back of my house!
At least the garden's getting a good soaking before the winter!
I trust you're all having a great weekend.
