It's almost Christmas and we are looking forward to having all our family here together again.
It has been a busy time since we got back from Africa and the good news is that we have got the flight tickets for Joseph and Nairesho's trip to Australia. (Joseph and his wife Nairesho, for those who dont know, are the Kenyan maasai family we have been friends and living with for the past 20 years.) They arrive on 4th April 2019, and will be with us for a total of 10 weeks, half of which will be spent on a road trip going through the centre of Australia then via Mt. Isa and Longreach over to the east coast where Joseph finally gets to meet our son Nathan,... something he has looked forward to for many years. We have the tickets, insurance, letter of invitation etc etc, all we have to do now is apply for the Australian visa, which they have to do at their end, with the help of our letter, and cant be done until beginning of January... so we are all keen to hurry up and get this process finalised. Naturally there is no way they could afford this trip without us funding it... so we have to say a BIG THANKYOU to all our customers who have donated to make this very special CULTURAL EXCHANGE happen.
Anyone wishing to meet Joseph and Nairesho can visit our gallery on any weekend in April, although Nairesho might find it all a bit daunting for her, as she doesnt speak english yet!!! However Joseph does, and loves a chat.!
Back at the galler;y, we have expanded our gift shop, and created new Icy drinks on the menu, with a possibility of new things to come.!!
So we would like to wish everyone a SPECTACULAR christmas season and a even better New Year.
