Sunrise in the Southern DRC this week whilst driving to work …. stunning silhouettes ..

Thick mist at work, with the sun battling to shine through ….

Hopefully this all bodes well for peace and stability in this region …..

Such a cute little pup …. settling in so well thanks to T’s patience … and the cats discipline 🙂

The Whisk and Lili are fast becoming big mates … cuddle buddies on the horizon 🙂

May they continue to bring joy and peace to our lives … much love to all my followers and peace for the new year …

Colours of the Congo – Part 3

Storm Clouds gather over the office … and then it all comes crashing down; thunder, lightening and torrential rapid downpours

The Plains of Africa … Big Sky

A small visitor and the road back to camp … with another approaching thunder storm, the horizon is alive with flashes of lightening.

Mike’s Cats

Some recent photos of my kitty cats … there is an absent third one … who has moved out of his own accord … I still miss Marco … but Whiskey and the princess Coco keep me company.

I have had cats my entire life … will grow old with my cats and be known as the crazy cat man … these 2 little cute things are my current cat companions … the Rapscallion Whisk and Princess Coco 🙂 one a rescue and the other rescued from a pet shop. They have their moments of brother and sister love, and then they don’t. The Whisk puts up with a lot of the Princesses moods …until he has had enough … 🙂

 

My snow Wookie …always welcome at home my boy, come home anytime …

…and thanks to the hand of .. “mom” ..who looks after them while I am away 🙂

Colours of the Congo – Hills&Dales

Hills and Dales from my mountain bike cycling excursions on my off time in the Southern DRC …all work and no play is not good, rest time to clear the head is important.

African Sunset

Took these pictures whilst out walking on Wednesday night, to have dinner at a neighbouring project. …  as the sun was going down after a day of heavy rain … love the rich vibrant colours of the African sky.

Location- In the bush in The Southern DRC.

Amazing nostalgic soulful song with an African feel on the percussion and rhythm. Love the soul in this song, although it brought a tear to my eye … as I miss my loved ones (family) whilst being so far away ….

Fly, fly away
Do you remember?
All of us sleeping
How many of us dream?
This sky where we live
Is no place to lose your wings
So love, love, love
