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!
