The great East Africa Safari, part 1

Greetings from Grimbabwe, Legion of Fans (LOF) where Mrs Blog and I are currently staying in a mansion, in Harare. Unfortunately, it's a mansion with no electricity and no water.

What fun it is to take a daily bucket bath on the lawn with water drawn from a greenish swimming pool. We're off to Lake Kariba next week for a houseboat trip which promises to be great fun (although we're secretly looking forward to hot showers, fresh water and flushing loos more than the fishing or game viewing).

Internet connectivity is still patchy for me, but I've managed to send off the first part in a series of stories about our recent adventures and misadventures in East Africa.

You can read my first dispatch, from Kenya, at my Getaway Blog, here

You know the drill - go there and leave lost of comments.

Don't worry only dirty people need to shower and once youv'e had a few beers you won't care anyway.

My comments on Getaway just don't appear, could be my computer.

I've lost a few on getaway as well. Might not be your computers, might be content. Or might be something as simple as forgetting to type "the code".

Ali G - like to see the houseboat you're "roughing it"in - it's only a few bits of plywood tacked together with a tent on top I'm sure !
