I’m not sure whether there’s global warming in Benin, or whether it’s always been this warm.

However, it’s certainly not long johns weather here at the moment, with temperatures ranging from 28-34 degrees C and very very humid!

Thanks to Eddie Arthur and Richard Hall for this one!


In addition, we’re having TONNES of power cuts, sometimes for up to 12 hours at a time
(so I have to choose my moments for updating the blog as our connection doesn’t work during power outages either). Still, at least we have the generator now, which helps (even if it’s noisy).


Other news…

  • Our president was ambushed last Thursday, but emerged unscathed. However, some of his entourage were hurt. Read the full account on the BBC site by clicking here.
  • We have the school’s performance of ‘Pirates of Penzance’ (no link to previous item!) next Wednesday (28th) and are frantically rehearsing for that.
  • The senior and junior schools are set to swap buildings during the Easter break.
  • Our friends, Alex and Jackie (and children) are flying out to see us for Easter and hope to visit the Pendjari Park too.
  • Lois is busy organizing the school’s Summer Fayre, which takes place after Easter.

And finally…

Rob had had a new haircut!

This was partly due to the heat, but mostly because of the head accident he had a few weeks back. “Now my hair’s all the same length again” he says “but it is weird having it this short.”

Lois thinks he looks like Max, from ‘Max and Paddie’s Road to Nowhere’ (played by Peter Kay).

Have a look at these two – can you tell the difference???


What d’you think??? Leave us a comment!

Rob, we agree with Lois that you look like Max – it makes you look more mature too (but that might not be a bad thing!).

Mature – like cheddar???
That’s fine, but I did shave off the sides of the beard because they had TOO MANY white hairs in!!!
