The Wood family have made it to Benin! Here they are around midnight shortly after arriving lastnight:


Having a relaxing day, chatting and unloading bags etc. Gary has already ridden on a zemidjan and we’re off to the pool this afternoon.

The Landrover’s in the garage and we’re hoping it’ll be done soon (as Rob has a workshop this Wednesday and will have to catch the bus if not!) Mobile phones still not working, but electricity and water have been quite good lately!

Bye for now.

PS Anyone feel like entering the name that bird competition? (see post on 2nd August below…)

Glad to hear that the Woods made it OK – and with appropriate dress!

Ditto to Big Al’s comment!! We’re back from France but very jealous of the Woods being with you in Benin – we’re even getting a bit better at speaking the lingo now! Love to all.

I love Gary’s shirt! We’ve been very much thinking of you all back here in sunny, warm Ampthill.

Woah… Can Benin cope with TWO people wearing loud shirts???

Great to see they arrived safely. Hope you all have a great 3 weeks!

Thanks for your comments, folks! Gary bought an African shirt the other day too (first of many, I hope…)

Lovely to see the Woods all arrived safely. Have a great time, and love to the Bakers too
