We left Martin at home this morning as we had several errands to do. First stop was the bank to transfer some money to Danso's the company who are doing some maintenance on the wells at Jamwelly and Kumbija. Pump wells are worked hard here and frequently need bearings replacing as they get worn. Then we went to visit the Jallow family with two sacks of cous which Linda and Steve had picked up from his brother whilst up at Kumbija. We were surprised to find Mr Jallow at home as it is a college day, but he explained he had permission to be off as he was attending a school meeting in the afternoon. The shop he has built for Mrs Jallow is looking fine and is stocked with all the essentials for local shopping, rice, washing powder, matches, sardines, sugar, tea, batteries etc. the youngest children were at home and we spent about two hours with the family before heading back home. Martin had gone round to Neil's bar, so we joined him for lunch, before returning home for the afternoon round the pool. Friday night is the buffet night at Al Rawshe, so we changed and headed off their for dinner. An enormous choice awaited us, many different kinds of Lebanese starters, all you can eat, which was good news to Martin. Followed by four choices of main course (or all if you want)
Martin is a chef by trade and is always interested in different foods to experiment and try to copy himself, so it was an interesting evening for him.
A pleasant evening, returning home to find we had power! So the men watched a film before bedtime, and I went to read.
