During the weekend me and Heidi went exploring a bit in the neighborhood. There was some beautiful drives to and from Worcester where we stayed over nigh at The Golden Valley and watched the Champions League final. It was a great match between the two best teams in Europe at the moment and Barcelona was worthy champions. As my birthday is soon coming up Heidi decided to bake me a lovely cake, there is apparently still hidden talents to discover about that 'young' lady :-)

Was invited for Neema and Pankaj engagement party. Pankaj is a student from University of Eastern Finland that came to Tumaini on an exchange program last year and fell in love with the Tumaini student Neema. The young love couple are now planning a life in togetherness and they are brave enough to go against the will of their families. Some cultural clashes are to be expected but they decided to follow their hearts and give love a chance. I have raised some warning flags but respect and support their decision and dedication. The engagement came however with a condition - That Pankaj organizes five cows within a week!

The last two weeks we had elephants, warthogs, meerkats, donkeys, horses, cows, goats, snakes, cameleons.... crossing the road and passing Mikumi yesterday I had the luck to see 2 lions crossing the road. They quickly disappeared in the high grass next to the road, I tried to wait them out as I could see the grass moving but after half an hour I gave up and continued my drive to Iringa where I am now.
