back


I have a tan.

My hair looks like it’s a tumbleweed, my feet are polished from hours of sand-time, my skin is glowing, I laughed until I cried.

We spent four days in the lap of pure luxury, jolling with the staff, drinking mojito’s – sometimes all day long – no phones, spending time with my German friend, who we’ve named Fritzl The Shitzl, Ant and M.

Pretty much exactly what the doctor whoredered.

Mozambique really is one of the most friendly, beautiful countries on Earth.

Benguerra Island is exquisite.

We had lots of chats about wanking.

We flew from Vilnakulos to Benguerra in a chopper. A chopper mate. At one point, hovering just 5 metres over the waves, it was surreal.

I’ve done Mozambique a few times before, but never like this.

Nearly missed our flight back.

I’m tired. All that salt air has gone to my head.

The Ant was a peach. Fritz ran naked into the sea a few times in broad daylight. M was the ultimate host. They even played my trash music on my Shytepod.

Got a bit chowed by mosquitoes when I feel asleep under the stars. Malaria, swine flu…I’ll know in two weeks if it’s all good I guess.

And now, a shitstorm awaits me in my inbox. Funny how reality is never really far away, but paradise is.

Swine flu is not so bad gets you off work for a week or in my daughters case a week off school - you loose 4kg's in 3 days from the vomiting and runny tummy and you sleep a lot and then you go back to your inbox - I prefer your time off to be honest *g*

very proud of you for actually coming back ... I am near refused to get into the car for the return trip home - mind you the fact that my traveling companions were over-fond of playing LosLappie whilst stone cold sober might have added to the reluctance to get in ... well done either way

OMG I have so much to catch up on! I miss ya mate!!

Aw man, I'm dying to go to Moz! Blondie 2 moved up there recently and you'd think I'd have the perfect "excuse" to go and visit, but Noooo....I had to go and have my passport stolen. Yay!

OK...1 week to go til the BIG MOVE and then you know what that means. Can't wait.

Going to go back and catch up with the reading! Bye...

Watch the malaria, Peas. I got it on Bazaruto around 10 years ago, was quite a bitch. Three others from our group also caught it at the same time. So if you have some flu-like symptoms, go to the quack toot sweet...
