New Year's Eve 2013 in Mwadui

This was our second Christmas and New Year in Tanzania - our third in East Africa. We seem to always be in Africa for this season.

As I said in my Christmas post last week, the Client had only a few expats remaining on their camp. Most of our United Nations camp opted to go to the local bar to celebrate which left only four of us: Grant, me, Johan and Steve. 

Of course we joined our friends at the club and after enjoying a potjie, salad and homemade bread, we had a singalong for the rest of the evening.

A great time was had by all! 

Louise and I were the only ladies present and both decided to light up the evening with our bling outfits!
Grant and Steve, both bikers talk - what else - bikes!

I trust you've all had a wonderful festive season with friends and family and rearing to go in 2014!
