pedalers and friends

September 26, 2008

Our trips to Gambia always result in meeting some interesting and wonderful people. Last week we had a suprise visit from Jamie and Emma who we met very briefly when at Footsteps in March. They were travelling from Bristol to the east coast so that Jamie could continue his peace pedaling journey across Europe. It was our anniversary which meant a lively, fun evening supping champagne and chatting til late.

Thanks guys we had a great evening and look forward to catching up soon. If you want to find out about Jamie’s travels visit


Wanderer returns

Rich has returned from his trip to see progress on the house. He insists that his was very busy sorting out roof design and looking at tiles but judging by his photos there was quite a bit of relaxing too!


Rhubarb to go

September 3, 2008

The build continues slowly due to the rain. Rich will be going out to visit the build on Friday so look out for more updates coming soon. Below is one of the latest photo – don’t photos of brick walls get a little boring after a while? The list of supplies he will be taking out include; puzzle books, mobile phone chargers, lettuce, rosemary, cress, coriander and rhubarb seeds (who knew you could grow rhubarb from seed?) and a solar pump! I am also sending out a Man United hat for Abdoulie who we sponsor – see photo. Why do so many Africans support Man U?
