Hey Ted
Have a good one! If you make it up to Livingstonia, check out the museum. Is the turntable with a vinyl record by the "Gay Darkies" still there?

cheers

Merry Christmas Ted. I'm following your African journey over on your blog .. and now looking forward to seeing the Ethiopia / Kenya / Uganda / Rwanda / Tanzania / Malawi pics when you find a fast internet (upload) connection.

Maybe we can meet-up in Ripley next June? Could be that greenmanalishi can introduce us, as I'm hoping to see him at the Cornish mini meet early next February.

Meanwhile, best wishes from me and a roast turkey

.. and my new Dalai Lama talking doll (from Asda) ..

KEITH
