From across the sea...
.. arrived a package we sent by (sea-) post on 22nd November, exactly seven months ago, from Dar-Es-Salaam, Tanzania.
In it was contained various guide books, post cards and leaflets and a very smelly woollen hat from the Simien Mountains. Fascinating!
In the meantime, well done Italy and Ghana for winning today and getting through to the next round of the World Cup. Excellent. Who knows? A semi-final between Italy and either Argentina or Germany? Interesting. And how will Brazil cope with Ghana, assuming Brazil beat Japan tonight?
Further, my horses have not been running so well, Nyarhini managed to come second last, Ivy Crek came sixth today, despite starting hot favourite (beaten by the draw?) and Dragon Dancer will not be running and wil wait for the Irish Derby instead (worth a lot more money, if more difficult to in).
Off in a minute to meet up with our friend Monique from Harar/Leuven, who is visiting Amsterdam with some American friends.
