The following post is from a series of emails I wrote to my girlfriend at the time, whilst on a trip to Africa. She is now my wife, so I did something right.
I think I have everything. My bag weighs 15 kilos, well under the limit. I have my passport, checked that 19 times. And my tickets, I’ve checked that 18 times.
I have pants, socks, shorts, trousers, long johns, swimming costume, several entire kitchen suites, a horse shoe, fifteen litres of elephant faeces, a spoon, a snorkel, suntan lotion, after sun, sun conditioner, sun moisturiser, sun shampoo, sun glasses, a sun bed, my friend’s son, and a sombrero.
And now I have an hour and a half to wait before being picked up. I’m preparing this post now, because I won’t have an opportunity to write from 30,000 feet.
I hope you feel better about the car, and all that. I hope the verse today helps. It comes from a really interesting translation – The Free Bible. Its a bible translation, but in the same style as wikipedia; translated by everyday people. I quite like it, but yeh, anyway…
