We are back at Cape Point at the ECCO house. This morning we left Berefet where we had been for just under two weeks. This afternoon we are going to see our Wollof teachers again to pick up the drums and film a performance. Tomorrow we see our Mandinka teacher Momodou again and pick up the Koras. We already have the djembes, the ballaphones, the calabash drum, the talking drums, the rattles, and the flutes. Do you see how all of those instruments are pluralized? It is a very serious concern that we might be hugely over the weight limit with all of the instruments that we bought.
We'll be back in London on Saturday morning. Very very early: we land at 3:30am. Kate's boyfriend Simon will be driving Nick and I back to Sundial which is very nice of him- and greatly needed because frankly if he didn't drive us I have no idea how we would get back...
The trip has been great, we haven't had any massive fights and we're all still friends. Impressive, yes?
I'm really looking forward to resuming normal phone and internet service because I MISS YOU.
