It was time to lend Mum a hand again.

I left on a propeller plane that took off over the mangrove swamps south of David on a beautifully sunny and hot afternoon (93F). By the time I return home, the rainy season will almost be upon us.


I’ve been fortunate that the weather, though cold, has been very sunny.


Mum still has the same visitors every day.


It gets down to around freezing at night, with frost, but the central heating keeps me warm enough.
