Meanwhile


...Mwanza, near the Equator,
MasterM is messaging his parents...


MasterM
Just so you know,
I have come up to Lake Victoria.
My mate had a return ticket
that he couldn't use so I took it.
In Mwanza now.
I have a first class sleeper cabin
tonight across the lake.
Should be an experience!!

MrsM to MrM
Where even is Lake Victoria?

MrM to MrsM
DO NOT GOOGLE IT

but MrsM does...
and spends the rest of the evening
thinking about life jackets and crocodiles.
It's not easy being the mother of MasterM.

  1. worth looking up Bokuba on Google Maps at the same time. Overnight boat from Mwanza costs a tenner apparently.

    Hopefully MasterM has bought a return ...

  4. I'm with Rachel ... first class is often not all it's cracked up to be ... as Master M says, it will no doubt be an experience!

  6. Most families have a MasterM you know. Just sayin.
    Didn't we go over that over cocktails?

  7. Sounds exciting. Good for him! There's nothing like travelling, the only one that enriches you, truly. Go MasterM!!!

    And you, m'dear, why don't you listen to MrM ... just for once.

  8. The first ever flight that I took - on Royal Air Maroc, I was upgraded to first class and the flight was sublime - I have no idea why you might worry...
