Welcome to Lach Fergusson's
TRANS-AFRICA OVERLAND ADVENTURE!



DATE: 15 October 2005
CURRENT LOCATION: Amman, Jordan - Bdwei Hotel
GPS COORDINATES: baaaaah, humbug!!! The alleyway's oo deep and narrow to get a satellite


Nothing like starting at the beginning, huh..? So I thought I'd send some pictures from the going away / mine and Mandy's housewarming party!!! Ummm, the photo taking was rather sporadic and doesn't really give “good coverage” (as my film friends might say), but maybe you'll get the jist. In any case, can you spot yourself there…


This is looking down from our front door into the 'common' courtyard that the party could finally spill into after the rain stopped.




And this is of course the view up to our front door (which leads into our very blue kitchen).




This is the very freshly and agonizingly painted living room with the snazzy kiwi green corner lounge couch (that is ever so slightly perhaps too large for the room… oh heck, but you sure can lie out on it!! Look at all those people!).



But back to the main action in the courtyard…














Oh! A little business interrupts and it's everyone for their phones.






You've heard of kissing the Blarney Stone for good luck? Well, I guess this is the Linford stone!!




Soon, everybody wanted to live vicariously through Mario and I…















Unfortunately, we had a casualty during the festivities…




I spent and hour haggling with this sly fellow in Marrakech in order to wrangle a super deal on this lovely blue bowl (amongst other fine Moroccan objets d'arts)…




And lookie how it ended up!!! Last damn party I'm ever gonna hold…

Ciao! Ciao!
