Ok. So I've never been out of Africa, so what? My ex-wife is determined to get me to visit her in London with the aim of convincing me to sell everything and move in with her on a permanent basis. Sounds very tempting but when I consider what I'm leaving, it is no longer so appealing.Imagine living on a 1000 hectare nature reserve in one of the most beautiful environments imaginable and then giving it up to stay in an upstairs and downstairs semi in the middle of one of the most densely populated cities in the world. Go figure.
Well I'm going anyway, in December, and according to my friends this is going to be a real eye opener. Of course, I have no doubt that England is really beautiful and has lots of advantages, but when I think about my geese and chickens and all the other life surrounding me at the moment, it does leave me with a feeling that I would rather she came to visit me.
