AN UNEXPECTED BONUS: AN AFRICAN JOURNEY,1973
Going though my cupboards a couple of months ago I made a wonderful discovery-a box of original colour slides from the Mahgreb and Egypt and immediately had them digitized. Rather than slotting them into the appropriate section of the existing text, I have added them at the end, so those interested in looking will find them with ease. If you love images and are interested in the African journey, please go to TRAVEL/ AN AFRICAN JOURNEY,1973

Contemporary artist for 40 yrs, now focussing on writing- poetry, travel writing, short observational and experiential pieces as Posts, and most recently working on a long Memoir. As hair turns greyer I value close friendship and my relationship with my long-term partner ever more. Other passions - a quiet life, the natural world, my garden, plants & animals, classical music, good books. I feel deeply about social justice/ human rights & refugee issues. And love a good laugh. There's not enough love, kindness and laughter in the is mad world.

How lovely to see your beautiful images of times past and travel in amazing places Miss B.
So pleased you enjoyed. Nice to have some feedback. It was an incredible adventure!
Wonder wonderful magical amazing.. how incredibly lucky to have travelled during such a time of freshness and the freedom!, to do it. Oh lucky us and a huge plus that artists like you dear Bonney did it and recorded those travels so beautifully.

Well wern’t they marvelous times! I DO consider myself extremely privileged to have done such adventurous travels. Documenting was and still is something I feel compelled to do-writing and artwork or photographs…not a photographers daughter for nothing! But you are right to talk of freedom -partly due to our youth but also ‘the times’. Thanks for your comments. As always, Lainest, much appreciated x
Enjoyed immensely as usual. You amaze me with the memories you recall and the precise information contained therein.
Looking forward to the finished kitchen photos.
Much love, Rosie xx
Rosie, another loyal follower…but it is great to know a few people read and look and enjoy. Thanks. Remember, its not my memory of 50 years ago that can take the credit for all ( yes for some parts of the Africa travels) but finding copious notes for part of it. Certainly any travels made over the last 10-15 years are well documented…cant help myself, just love writing…. and sharing. x Kitchen! Outside camp kitchen interesting today as we had more unexpected rain, lots!
Hello Bonnie and Jon I wanted you to know Jack is very ill. He was in the hospital in May and they removed fluid from around the heart. The Dr deleted his cancer drug because it may have been the reason of the fluid. He is not able to focus or speak legible. He still home but with hospice.. I pray all is well with you two. Love Cyndi

Wont comment on this here Cyndy…await updated phone no. from you. xoxo Both in our thoughts constantly.
Fantastic! What a find after all those years, really good to see the way things were compared to recent travel photos I’ve seen of Egypt.
Well that’s an interesting comment-food for our next conversation. The complete absence of tourists in Egypt of course due to the war having JUST ended made for a unique experience and elsewhere eg Sudan, well in this case things politically are SO much worse in recent years than when we were there.x
