T Minus 62
So today is the longest day – the longest day of the year and the longest day for many years to come.
Life in Mwanza will be different, not least in the regularity of sun rise and sun sets. Twelve hour days and twelve hour nights, day in day out. My experiences of The Gambia and The Far East found it a strange thing for it to be both hot and dark in the evening. In the UK that never happens – long dark nights mean winter, long bright days mean summer. Equatorial living is something I’m just going to have to get used to!

T Minus 62
I’m writing this from Lincoln where I am up for the day. It’s a chance to visit Mum and to bring her back to stay with us for the week, but there is another purpose to the visit. I am here to drop off some items for storage.
In recent weeks Anita has been frantically scanning all of our photo albums. These are now fully digitised (she was up until 5:45am and has stayed home to sleep). So these albums are boxed and ready to store. These are accompanied by our Vinyl records and the DVD cases emptied of their contents which we will pack.
Another milestone on our route out of here!
A submission to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Between (Hammocks)
Two very different hammocks slung between the trees.
The first in a garden of a holiday home in Spain. A hammock of leisure!
Hammock in Ranatikiri
The second in a Cambodian jungle on a monsoon wet night. A hammock of necessity.
