Each Sunday we have the Fruit and Veg market which is located quite close to the Compound.We first visited there on our first full day in Mwanza

This is a good place to stock up on fresh produce and we often go on a Sunday afternoon to pick up some bargains. We are probably charged Mzungu prices, but a smattering of Kiswahili helps and the prices are really not too bad. Of course it isn’t just Fruit and Veg – there are other stalls too!


Songs of Christmas: Day 7 – Real

Nichole Nordeman: Real

I bought this on an album last year, but for some reason I never heard it before this year. When I did I was amazed, such a hauntingly beautiful song, sung by a voice I didn’t know. Not a classic, definitely new but a firm favorite.

If you go to a Nativity this year think about this song and think!
