Portraits of an Uncle

Said goodbye sadly to wicked uncle J this morning as he flew home after a great week with us. The children adore him and we like him quite a lot too. He might not like me so much after he sees how many photos of him are in this blog. He he! Here are some of my favourite pics...
Returning to nature...
The leap of doom
Helping get stuck landrovers out of the mud in the middle of lion country is an activity we reserve especially for Uncle J's visits. He's an adrenaline junkie really. (Note that I took this picture from the saftey and comfort of the vehicle - after all, entertaining the children is really the hardest task...)
Good plank Mancub
Attack the Uncle!
See that waterfall? We stood at the top of that after viewing the elephant caves, where they've used their tusks to gouge out bits of rock to eat for the mineral content.
Maybe this isn't Uncle J? Sometimes these pics are hard to make out...


  1. Hi. I have enjoyed looking through your blog.
    I am moving to Arusha with my family (from Australia) in June. I have 3 kids - 12, 11 and 9. I'd love to ask you many questions re living in Tanzania, about a school I am thinking of sending the 2 eldest to, churches, shopping etc. If that would be possible my email address is fennyjen at bigpond dot com.
    Cheers, Jenny

  2. Hi Jenny

    I've tried emailing you. Post another comment if my email doesn't get through and I'll try again!
