Leaving soon

Only a few days left until Nettus and I arrive in Zinder, which will be really green at this time of the year. Despite the humidity, it will be a treat (for the eyes!) to watch Niger in its green cover and although the rainy season isn't going to last for that much longer, it's been so long since I experienced it that even just a couple of weeks are precious.

That said, we will arrive on Friday evening and start work on Monday, so we'll have two days to try to get our house in order - at least to the point where you can move about freely and not have to crawl over any furniture in order to reach the bathroom...

I don't know when I'll have the time to ride, but I do know that I'll be quick to walk over and give our whinnying girls a hug. Don't know how soon I can move them in with us, but we'll just take one day at a time - the African way...

Ishtar, You talk about getting your house in order. Just wondering what your living conditions will be like and if it is easy to find housing in Niger. Counting the days with you.

Vad spännande för er att få komma ner igen! Håller tummarna för att allt ska gå bra med resa, huspysslande och jobb. Vi hörs, min vän!!

Kram Karin
