Fondest memory: Not only was it Christmas Eve, it was also Clive’s birthday that day. Noah had bought some champagne to celebrate, but most of it went on pouring on Clive’s head amidst a lot of clapping, shouting and singing. Supposedly a local tradition! We all enjoyed a few drinks in honour of Clive and a good night was had by all.
Fondest memory: We arrived in Kouadangou on Christmas Eve – this was to be a rather unusual celebration. From England we’d brought with us the Santa Hats and an inflatable reindeer (as you do), and we wore the hats all evening. The reindeer started the evening on the roof of our tent, continued on the dining table and finished being deflated and given as a gift to Noah, for his two year old daughter. It was a Christmas we’ll never forget.
