    ... by George, and then Curry night and a cultural show which got a bit too close for the likes of George and Dan! Everyone then wondered off down the beach through the plan trees to the adjacent Beach Bar for a night cap and maybe a dance or two. The younger beests have been keen to contact you about their Kilimanjaro exploits and their messages follow this blog.

Juma arrived soon after we had breakfast and we waited for a while before deciding to catch a taxi van instead of the daladala.....can't say I was disappointed! I could just imagine the sweaty, wet bodies crushed into the vehicle; with the open sides we would have been wet through. A very sensible decision. Our first stop was at Saumo's ...

    ... playing cards for hours longer than you intended. I must have played at least a thousand hands of President since coming here. Doesn't stop it being a fantastic game though. "Yeah in a bit" is the constant refrain, and why not? It's this lack of urgency that makes the island so idyllic in many ways, though sometimes the mental torpor can get quite unpleasant. But I've decided to stay longer than originally planned despite ...
