Feb 25, 2011 - Final Fling

Since I was the original person to start this blog- I thought I'd be the anonymous (bent) voice to finish it. (Well, at least for Meru) Ewan has been here for precisely six weeks, (but it feels like far far longer) and in that time, he has become our resident little buddah in camp. His little (big) belly and specs are forever popping up around the place, and the gradual transformation of his hair colour from flax to ginge has afforded us plenty of amusement.

Jan 21, 2011 - Mac in Meru

Ewan MacKenzie Smith arrived on the 18th of January, weighing approx. 3 tonnes due to the combined weight of the Matatu and the Resupply order he travelled up from Nairobi in. He has been moderately well behaved, crying only a little at nights, and eating up all his food. His curiosity knows no bounds, chasing after ellie's with little regard for his safety or self preservation. In case, at this point you are worried that there is something in the water making him a little batty and prone to talking about himself in the 3rd person... fear...
