The Oto Yikama boys
The authorities forgot to put any gravel on the newly tarmac-ed road, with the result that our yellow taxi gradually turned black. We felt a bit guilty about having asked him to go down that road, but with the help of these young chaps who wiped the car clean after the chap on the left and spurted his water on the black tarmac covering the car. The car was as yellow as ever in the time it took for us to drink a cup of chai and take a few pictures (of course). We gave them some money and the rest of the pliums we had left over from earlier in the day. (See here [www.flickr.com/photos/charlesfred/5977147850/in/datetaken/] )

Annemiek van den Berg (1956-2011)
My goodness, I had completely forgotten about this series of photos from Fred's birthdfay back in June. I remember that, as a special friend, Annemiek was invited over to ahve dinner with us first before the party started and I can also remember calling the taxi for her to leave sometime deep into the night. Had forgotten that we had had this little photo session on the balcony, this photo having been created with the self-timer. Here she is looking as glamorous as usual.

At the sheep farm
This girl came out of her house to see what was going on with these strangers in town and immediately burst into tears when she saw one of us (we were giving a lift to two fellow travellers on this day). However, after the tears had been wiped away it was not long before she started playing up in front of the camera, her little brother now being the shy one and hiding behind his big sister. A charming moment.

Happy with good friends
Our first Canal Parade in three years and after a sunny start, it rained again. Not enough to dampen our spirits and it was great to catch up with Rob and Ghisliane after not seeing them for a few weeks.
I thought I'd not bother taking pics but I brought the little Panasonic and ended up running the battery down...
