See that young man in the red shorts in the middle of the river that runs through the Tanzanian jungle on the way up to Mt Meru? That's my boy. Wading across slippery stones in the middle of nowhere. There's probably snakes in that undergrowth. Does he look like he's wearing sensible shoes? I'm not even sure he took sensible shoes. And where's his hat?
There are times when I love Facebook. It's such a great way to keep in touch and to feel like you are included in things going on across the other side of the world. I love it when I log on and see that J is tagged in someone's photo and I can click on it and see what he is up to. There were quite a few other photos which I have also copied but don't like showing other people's faces without their permission. Let's just say they look a happy bunch of volunteers. And that makes me a reassured mum.
