Tomorrow morning Colin + I head off to our next destination… Mauritius! But, I can’t leave South Africa without a post about our new friends and all the new sayings we are going to bring back to the states.
Lloyd actually isn’t a new friend. I met him last September in Birmingham at the Green Building Focus Conference. (Lloyd is one of the brains behind Alive 2 Green.) A treat this trip was to see him again and meet his girlfriend, Lisa, who is just fantastic.
- Now Now – something that is happening in the immediate present
- Just Now – something that will happen in the next 24 hours
- Doo – Us – I don’t know how to spell this one properly, but it pretty much means loser
Gordon is Lloyd’s partner in Alive 2 Green and his lovely wife Robin works there as well. (She has given us all kinds of great tips for Mauritius + Dubai.) Matt also presented at the conference and is from Bath, England. (We had quite the international table.) This photo was taken at a delicious Thai dinner, where a highlight was Gordon telling us jokes about Australia involving Bruce + Sheila. USA friends… think of Bruce + Sheila as the white trash cousins of Bobby + Betty Buckhead (or Johnny + Debbie Dallas).
Cara, Suraya, + Nelize are also part of this amazing family of friends Colin + I now have at Alive 2 Green. I could go on and on about how fun, smart, and kind they are, but I won’t bore you. We can’t thank them enough for their amazing hospitality this trip and for their friendship. I can’t wait to see them the next time I’m in South Africa.
