My mother and father are heading off to Tanzania in early July to spend 12 months working in Bukoba for VSO! It's very exciting for them, as it's something that they've wanted to do for a very long time. I'm hoping for my mysterious benefactor to pull his/her finger out and fly me to Africa to visit them at some point but I doubt it will happen, somehow. I'll just have to live vicariously through their blogs - Mum's at Our year in Africa and Dad can be found at Bukoba Steve's Tanzania birding blog.
Needless to say, I am very, very proud of them both.
