Ja cheguei!!!! I've arrived!

Caros amigos, dear all,

Cheguei bem e salva a Tanzania. I have arrived sound and safe.

There are still some problems with adaptors to all electric appliances (again!!), since nothing fits anything in this Southern Africa of my heart (now, sort of East Africa).

In South Africa, we have the 3-round-pin plugs. In Mozambique, it depends on who built the building, it can be anything, from the German 2-thick-round-pin ones to the american 2-flat-short pin ones.

In Tanzania, for your knowledge, the standard plug is a 3-flat-square-pin one.

After being so cold for the last months, I knew the heat would be a shock to me. I expected that. It is the beginning. March will bringbthe TOP heat, before the rains come.

Peter and I went yesterday and today to the swimming pool, which is NEVER cold, and I think this is going to be quite healthy, doing exercises every morning in the water.

Still ahead, and soon, finish looking for a house.

And in two weeks, back to Johannesburg.

Two days to Dar

After quite a stressful - but fortunately successful - 4-week spell in Mozambique, these cool days in Cape Town are definitely a change. Not that I could stop working: there is quite a lot behind and ahead regarding my end of the year assignments.

It is windy, and yesterday we had a big whale family playing in the bay.

In two days, I'll be arriving in Dar es Salaam. Wow! That will be a difference! Blue sky every day, no wondering about what's the weather gonna be like. Warm Indian Ocean waters and so on.

The picture below is of my latest big group in Mozambique. Actually it is only part of the 43 people group. Please, note the good mood!

Exciting end of the year, still a lot of celebrations to come!

Andre sent me an interesting video with an interview with author Tom Robbins about Osho.

Já há 9 dias em Maputo, and counting. A lot of work, so far successful. Ontem foi o Dia da Paz Moçambicana. Mês de dois dos meus filhos fazerem aniversário! Meninos, ficando velhos!
