Hanging out to dry




Looking through my old pics trying to find some more shop art for ya'll and I came across these photos that I took in Mozambique a couple of years ago. It tickled me at the time. And now, actually.
Went to rural Mozambique to train a drama troupe there. A surreal trip all in all, I'll have to tell you about it one day. For now, though, these funny epaulettes hanging out to dry.

You do get around! And training a drama troupe. What is it you actually do miranda? Or perhaps it is everything.

Ha! I USED to be a safari guide (hence the safari guide examining of a previous post) but 8 or 9 years ago I ditched that and set up a company called Seka that does educational theatre mostly.

I'm trying to set up something similar here in Tanzania and my permit to work came through yesterday so HURRAH!

And now, dear readers, thanks to linking, which Miranda thinks she can't do, you can click here and go directly to her site.

So you were at Rhodes? I was, briefly, disaster. Luckily I grew up later.

Who wants to wear dirty epaulettes?

Why do people wear epaulettes, hmmmm? I never understood their glamour.

Great pics, though!

Hey there, These epaulettes out to dry are fabulous & quirky, but they make me a bit sad too. I wonder whose they were.

I'm back! And enjoying catching up with your blog. Love the random photos - they tend to be the memories that linger about travel.

Hi! Product of Black Box! My church goes to Mozambique every summer- strange to see it mentioned, you don't hear of it very often!
