    Hi Marc and Felicity,
    A very Happy New year - pictures are amazing - hope your journey is still going well - roads in UK especially Forest Grange have ben fun the last week - we’ve had over 16 inches of snow and of course gritters don’t come down our lane - still working party with shovels helped although we still can’t see the surface opf the road - driving out of here and geting back is a real challenge!! Boys had a couple of days extra holiday - but now determination to get on has kicked in! Keep safe.
    love from
    Jo, K, N and G x

    Hi Marc & Felicity
    Apologies for not contacting earlier but we missed your departure from Malawi. Glad the shelter was finished & we hope the maize project to help fund salaries for Joyce & Augustine is underway. Regrettably we have made no progress with the High Commission re-shipping goods to Nagakama. So far the best price is close to £400 for a shipment so we shall just keep trying. Thanks for the photos. Lyn now has the link established at VHNS & is planning to fundraise next year for the 2 day care centres.Hope you have a safe & happy Krimble. Best wishes from Lyn & Malc.x

    Welcome back into the land of the living. Im sorry you had such a bad experience on the Zim border. It will probably stay with you for the rest of your life and not many people will be able to match that. I hope you enjoy your stay in Malawi and get to grips with the wounds clinic.

    Well done Marc and Felicity - you have my sincere congratulations on such a fabulous trip. I think it is safe to say you must be capable of anything now with all those border posts to get across. We are planning to move out to CT next Jan. I hear your Mum has got a fabulous job in Tanzania.

    We have just been talking about Bull elephants and their size. We have decided that we could fit only 1 in our classroom. Now we have to get on with our practice exam paper. Not as exciting as travelling through Africa. Well done for getting down through Africa in one piece.

    Hi you two!
    Apologies for the late birthday wishes, but hope it was a good one Marc.Have spoken with Greg who is still raving about the excellent time spent there.The pictures & blog are well up to the usual high standard - though bull heffalumps seem to be moody gits!
    Let us know if you think there is a link with one of your projects you feel appropriate for Lyn’s pre-school nursery (2-4 year olds) as she would love to consider doing something.
    Take care. Malc & Lyn
    P.S. Delighted the old feller managed to upgrade!

    Lets hope that things will be easier for a while now. Gorillas and white water rafting seem to have made up for some of the harder days travelling over the last few weeks. Glad you had time to visit school in Uganda that you ran Marathon for and that the nursery is finished. Pictures of children look great. take care. cherry

    Hi all
    We haven’t updated the diary for a while, because the internet was too slow in Ethiopia.

    Sudan seems to have disappeared from your list of countries. Good thing I had read it and downloaded it before it went. Im doing my presentation to the whole school on Wednesday. A good section on Hilda and all her friends and you may be hearing from some of the pupils at school on her blog soon. We have a mascot also from ikea - the elephant. There is competition to name it and then they can converse. Will try and send a picture to go with yours of hilda. Let us know when you drop off any of the boots.

    Hi all

    Thanks for all the comments. We are sat overlooking the Nile now in Aswan. We have really enjoyed Egypt.

    Ferry to Sudan tomorrow, takes about 17 to 24 hours, depending on when it leaves. Then the car pitches up in Sudan about a day later….. we will be relieved to see it coming down the river (hopefully still on a ferry!!).

    Don’t know whether the oil leak was fixed but either way you MUST check the transfer box regularly and top it up with EP120 or 140 oil, once you are over the other side of the Med it will only cost coppers to have it checked and topped up. Also change the engine oil at least every 5000K and even shorter periods won’t do any harm, it matter not what oil is used BUT IT MUST BE CHANGED REGULARLY and the filter changed every twice or third time it cheap engineering and all you have to do to get to your destination FAIL TO DO THAT AND YOU’LL BE FLYING HOME REAL SOON…………………
    That’s it, Enjoy

    You don’t know us but we were put onto your website by Paul and Stuart at Foleys. We’re 10 days behind you, leaving the UK on 6th October and following much the same route so perhaps we’ll meet up en route. We’re still trying to sort out this guide business for Libya but otherwise almost ready to go.
