Yesterday was the birthday of my dear next door neighbour Joy, so in the evening we were all round her house for a cider & sandwich party. Guests of honour were our German friends Norbert and Marion who seem to be facinated by some of the goings on here inWeymouth. As usual the whole thing ended in a long sing song, mostly 60's & 70's, and a good time was had by all.
Not quite bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning all I had to do was sit on the coach to Heathrow Airport, so managed a bit of extra shut eye before flogging up on some of the creatures we may encounter in Madagascar. With some concern reguarding the protests in France, I was pleased to see that the flight toParis was both on schedule and on time, with the only reportable action being the Chilean Presedents flight taking off right outside of terminal 4, after his short visit to England.
The Chilean Presidential plane.
Our flight from Charles de Gaulle airport is at 10-35 local time tomorrow and we should arrive at the Madagascan capital Antananarivo at 21-00 also local. In the meantime I hope the readership will be content with a few more images from the archive, this time featuring those dinky little ducks the Teal.
