This Pagan Life

After having spent the bulk of the day translating the most boring document I've ever encountered (Small Grants Management Policies and Procedures Manual), I'm about ready to kick up my heels and join Maputo's finest Scots for a Beltane celebration.

I am going as a White Lady (or so my friend Helen has instructed me), which involves a white dress, a red sash, flowers and greenery in the hair, and a white face with great, dramatic makeup. I am doing the makeup for my girlfriends (several other White Ladies and a May Queen), and honestly can't wait to party.

Watch this space for some great photos sometime next week.

Hope you enjoyed it. Just popped in to let you know we arrived last week. We stay at hotel avenida. I dont like hotels much but it is a very comfortable place.

I am running around after my son and taking care of my daughter. Other than that, I am trying to settle myself in nicely.

~Mbini - Welcome! I am off to Nelspruit for business tomorrow, back on Wednesday the 20th. I then leave for Nampula that next week. Give me a call so we can schedule a coffee - I believe you have my number - if not, drop me an email.
