Home at last!







It's good to be home! I was welcomed home with a sign and with balloons - thanks, Pat. Splendid! Then in the office I was welcomed with a sign and more balloons - thanks Liz. And thanks to Carolyn for treating me to bangers and mash (with onion gravy) at The Plough in St Asaph.

I shan't easily forget the places I saw, or, more importantly, the people I met, in Cameroon. I remain in touch with many of them.
The images here, from the top, are of the pattern of a local costume from North West Cameroon I was given by Godwin, and of the costume made by Mary. The bottom one needs no description!

The fabrics are absolutely beautiful. Sounds like you have yourself a lot of wonderful memories, and friends both here and there :0)

Yes, I'm a lucky man, and my life has been enriched by the process of blogging. I've just been looking at your blog!

In reference to the comment on a blog about Esperanto, that was a summarization of a journal article written by someone else. It was for a class project, and not my personal opinion. I have different opinions on Esperanto, though I have not had the chance to learn the language.
