View of Kilimanjaro on the road to Taveta, near the Tanzanian border with Kenya
We knew Kilimanjaro was there – we’d glimpsed it behind the clouds many times – but the first time we met for real was the day we left.
The early morning was fresh as washing on the line, with the great volcano high in the blue above us all. It was stunning.
Zimbabwe – “Caged Bird” (also a poem by Maya Angelou)
I love Zimbabwe – I was born there, my father was born there, I went to school there, and I was married there. A few weeks ago I returned for a wedding.
It was a packed ten days. We stayed on a farm, we visited friends in Harare, and we spent three days in the Eastern Highlands.
Every step of the way weary Zimbabwe was courteous and kind.
Horse on guard duty in London
I am off travelling for a while so The Phraser will go quiet, but it should only be a couple of weeks before I’m bothering you again. In the meanwhile I thought I’d leave you under the watchful eyes of this excellent London horse.
Thanks for your company and all the best.
