A couple of weeks ago we spent a lovely week in a small town called Essaouira on the coast of Morocco. We spent a wonderfully relaxing week wandering the souks, tickling cats, reading books that I have been meaning to read for years, taking morning ‘nos-nos’ coffee and pastry and afternoon mint tea and pastries, eating delicious tagines/pastilla/grilled sardines, going to a real local hammam for a scrub and a touristy but luxuriant spa for a massage, watching a film (Ex Machina) in the open-air cinema… And spending time together, talking and getting to know each other again. All this (flights for two and a nice riad hotel in the centre) cost less than renting a cottage in damp, cold England! The world is crazy!

We have just got back from our trip to the wilder parts of Ethiopia in the Afar/Danakil region. It was an absolutely fabulous place and brilliant experience with an amazing group of people. I was a little dubious that I could fill three days and nights on an active volcano but I found it mesmerising and constantly changing. Getting back to normal life and reality is going to be difficult after this adventure!
Ode To Erta Ale
Erta Ale you are so fair With your golden pele's hair, Such a beautiful and mesmerising sight I wish I could stand here all night And take pictures of the changing light. Lava fountains of spectacular height, Splashing plumes of orange and yellow As you churn, grumble and bellow; We feel Earth's raw power and in awe Know that after three days we still want more. Erta Ale in your lava embers Such sights we will forever remember.
