New Toad On The Block

 

This mega-toad just walked by last night. Or should I say “hobbled”? Jumped?

Where did it come from? Where did it go? The answer knows only the wind…

Hahaha!!!  : )

Mr Chameleon

He lived for us a couple of months just under the roof of our veranda. Our local friends feared him, “…because he is venomous!!!” (which he is not).

We never saw him eat anything. Maybe he was in fasting mode??

Then one day his skin was coming off. And a few days later he wandered off. We hope to see him again. He was a friendly even though a bit quiet fellow… ; ))

Cairo

I stayed for fout days in this overwhelming 25 million megacity. The traffic is crazy: Cars speeding, pedestrians inbetween, including children... anarchy. I enjoyed the food, eg shawarma kebab. Also the sweets are reaaaly delicious. We spent some time with some friends and were of encouragment. Nice! : )

Blacksmith

Blacksmith

The guy in the left is working on 6-inch nails which he is hammering into shape.
Those nails will be used for the main frame of a Dhau: they will connect keel with ribs and must be able to take a beating in rough weather. The usual round nails wouldn´t suffice; the blacksmith´s nails have a four-sided shape.

A boy is responsible for supplying the furnace with air. It is very hot and a tough job for the young lad.

The sea with the Dhau harbor is only a few metres away. Many coastal villages have still somebody who works part-time as a blacksmith.

Cyclone

Cyclone

We are on the edge of the black thing!

For six days now rain on and off.
When I look out at the sea I see a dark blue wall of clouds all over the horizon.
Never thought I could have enough of rain in this usually dry country. ; )
But I´m tired of it. Really am.

Our 30m3- cistern was overflowing after only a few hours of torrential rain (!). Should have built bigger. No lack of water for us until 2015. : )
