homeward bound

Africa is relaxed, some would say slow when you arrive it takes time for the body clock to reset. Once set to Africa time though you start to enjoy the chilled nature of the people, they NEVER rush, they take time to stop and say hello, to talk and to smile. Everywhere we have been people smile and say hello, they ask us how we are, they are interested, they wish us well.

We have a 30 hour journey, 4 airports, 3 countries and 2 continents and we arrive into a snowy Heathrow, the M25 is jammed. The journey though is not one of geography, it is across a cultural divide, we're back in England, no one smiles, no one says hello and no one stops to talk.

It's gloomy and I don't mean the weather!

Africa, we will be back.
