Sunday 18th September 2016...Back in Blighty!!!

Well it was time to leave Bonnie Scotland and head south and after saying goodbye to Kathleen for making my visit so great I was out of town in Wee White One....trusting the GPS soon on roads I had not driven in a while Motorways!!!



 I stopped for a walk around Gretna Green a very popular place!!




 It was almost a 4 hour trip to June's house.... that is her car outside....
 I met June almost a year ago on the first day of my cruise to New Zealand and we became instant cruise buddies and stayed in touch...so it was nice to see her and to catch up on all our stories..
 WWO has a good place to park and we walked into the charming little town of Yarm..
 We had a late lunch and saw a banner advertising this concert in the local church and we decided to go and it was very unusual and interesting!!!
Welcome to the Home Page of the OSILIGI MAASAI WARRIORS. The seven-piece group comes from the village of Oleopolos and surrounding communities in southern Kenya, around thirty miles south of Nairobi.

Since 2003, the group has been performing an annual tour of the UK and will return for two months, later this year. They perform authentic and exciting Maasai tribal song and dance plus the world-famous Maasai jumping. The shows have been received with great acclaim in schools, churches and theatres from the south coast of England to the Isle of Skye in the north west of Scotland, and abroad.

Since 2010, the group has worked in close association with a small UK charity - Osiligi Charity Projects - to support infrastructural improvements in their local community. The results have been spectacular and can be found by using the links. The charity is separate from the tour but has earned both directly and indirectly from it.

"The tour is for our families, the charity for our community." Tajeu Minisa, leader, The Osiligi Maasai Warriors.
 June's friend Vince joined us and drove us around the local area on one stop saw and liked this sign!!
 This is one of the oldest Roman bridges in the area..
 We then drove up to a mountain park where their had been some bike races...notice I only got the bronze medal!!!
 but there was a beautiful view!!
Vince dropped us back at around 8.00  pm it was a lovely afternoon.....had a nice long bath and more chats with June and now ready for my book......Hope the weekend was a good one for all my readers!!!

Yashi Kochi!!
