El stupido! I disallowed Comments and then moaned that no-one Commented!
Feeling nostalgic this evening. Went for a long walk along the beach. My foot and leg are getting stronger every day. Then I sat and had a Belikin stout whilst sitting in the moonlight, looking at the velvet sky sprinkled with pinpoints of stars. Similar to Mozambique 3M black beer. I automatically looked for the Southern Cross and the Lighthouse at Beira. They weren't there but Jim Reeves on the computer; a fresh wind blowing off the sea; that distinctive ozone smell; the distant sounds of celebrations at a bar; a couple of stray dogs wanting fuss; all reminded me of years gone by, when I was young and life was an adventure stretching out into the hazy future. One memory that came unbidden was of a night and early morning when we all - me and the kids - lay on Twini Beach watching Halley's Comet. We were there until half past two in the morning. I wonder if they remember?
Overall, I feel more happy and relaxed than I have in years - there's something about this country that brings out the best in me.
