Date: 13th October 08
Location: Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania
Weather: Clear blue skies, hot sunshine and a light wind. 35°c
Status: Relaxing like never before……
Up at first light and then laid in bed for a while, the legs are feeling better today so it wasn’t such an epic mission trying to lower my body down the ladder to the sand below!
A windless perfect morning, we cooked bacon and egg baguettes, had yoghurt and apple and even some cereal – a perfect start to the day!
Did the laundry, tided the truck, polished Baccus so he looks his best for Mum and Dad tomorrow and then started to try and read “The Glass Bead Game” by Hermann Hess, a book Luke gave me back in January and I’ve carried around ever since. It’s a tough start to it, especially when you’re sat on a sun bed on white stinking hot sand with the sounds of the ocean ringing in your ears and the temperatures around the 30° mark!
Went for a walk along the beach to look at the other accommodation, and it appears we’ve chosen the best one again! Had an intense game of Frisbee with Jimmy and soaked in the ocean to cool down…..well I say cool down, it was hotter in the water than out!
Early dinner then bed.
