November 22

Greetings All,


I wake up each morning a most privileged person.

Swahili is rather elusive but everyone is incredibly patient with Buba Chris and I just keep plugging away at it.

The Arusha Christmas Market was astonishing, 1000s of folk from many nations and communities came together to raise money for multiple NGO's. Food, dancing, amazing singers, with a 16 year old girl a standout, I am sure the world will hear more of her.

Did a heap of networking and as a result have been invited to teach jewellery and metalsmithing at the International School in Moshi, asked to participate in a Design Group and also, to get involved in a Domestic Violence support group.

Have discovered Kenyan Brie, it is delightful. Have plenty of cheese in the fridge now, aged Gouda, a marvellous cheddar and a beaut blue. This is accompanied with a grand Danish whole grain bread.

Had the first class in the studio and what an excited, talented group, will be teaching up to 10 at a time so the Wondai training will be of great benefit.

I am surrounded by so much intimacy from open kind hearted people, it is beat.

    Hi Chris, wonderful photos! I can feel the atmosphere. Let's hope your group is better behaved than the Wondai mob ;) continued success to you. Veronica.

    So lovely to hear your news and all seems positive. You've settled in already and success!...Glad to hear about the extra teaching etc, well done!
    Life ticks away here in Doonan, back from freezing Tassie but not too hot here yet. Started flattening some of the lids you gave me and cutting some large discs, ready to restock for some online sales hopefully.
    Thoughts are with you and Marcus says "hi"

    Hi Chris, thanks for the update. Love the outfit you're wearing! All looks very exciting and we are so happy you've settled in without too much fuss, actually, you seem quite relaxed as though you have been there forever.
    Love to you, Maria & Tony.

    Hiya Young Chris, Glad to see you settled in & are enjoying. I loved the pics from your trip over, it's how I see the world from everyone else' trips:) It's great to hear you have classes lined up already. You won't have any troubles with your new classes I'm sure after having to deal with our "wandering minds" LOL. Take care always. Glad to see you're so happy. cheers
