I took the opportunity to load up my parents with mail to post from England for me before I left. This is a letter I sent to my friend John. I used up all my good stickers, but I think it was worth it!

It was very cool to sleep in a bed in a tent! Really cosy, but we could feel the night air and hear the crickets. It was my first time to see leopards and cheetahs in the wild. I'd recommend going on safari to anyone. I've lived here for a year and a half, but never in my life have I seen as much open space as I did in the Serengeti.
Safari Njema means to have a good journey in swahili. In swahili a safari means any kind of journey: not just those undertaken in a 4x4 in a national park.
After having no Christmas tree the previous two years I really wanted one this year. Jouni made this tree from wire and I made the decorations from felt (except for the heart).
But then also, my brother sent us this lovely tree, compact and made of wood. It came with all the little decorations. I'm so happy with our two trees!
