Africa Trek mourning

A terrible tragedy has hit our dear south african friends Nick and Jean More, hosts of Africa Trek (chapter 11) in Lion sands game reserve and who have become year after year among our fondest friends over numerous visits in France and South Africa. Nick lost his life in his helicopter last tuesday on the escarpement on his way to Johannesburg, along side three other people, leaving 10 orphans behind and a shocked community. Please pray for their soul to rest in peace and for their surviving beloved ones to get the strength to overcome this ordeal. Nick was the most devoted father, husband and friend, calm, reasonable, and advisable in all ways. We are also orphaned of an important beacon in our lives. It'll shine furthermore in our future. With jeani, Jonathan, Matthew, Anthony and Jack Alexandre, we share a sorrow we'll have to deal with over the years to come. Take care all of you, life is precious, fragile, unexpectable and short : that's why it's beautiful !

Africa Trek Mourning

bisou.jpg We just lost our dear hostess from Addis Abeba, Amaretch Guilbert who fought bravely against cancer these last seven years. She was the dearest creature, the "crown jewel" of her family as one of her brothers put it, and had welcomed us in Addis to heal our wounds and write the seconf half of the first leg of Africa Trek. She had walked us out of Addis until Debre Libanos for a couple of days and we wished we could have walk with her till the end of times. Her path on earth just stopped but will carry on eternally in our lives, before, we hope, to be reunited with her, if we make it to the higher place she must have been granted with. We've been blessed to share her last four months as she stayed with us. Her presence was a balm. Pray for her relatives, Jean-Claude, her husband, Abel and Matthias her sons and Loulith, her daughter of whom Sonia is the godmother. If you want to remind yourself how they entered our lives, open Africa Trek p. 305. Amaretch is also the beautiful person who is laughing under the acute pain of a huge blister Sonia is treating, in the Ethiopian episode of our TV series. She was a Lighthouse in our lives and will remain a beacon.

back from South africa

The last page of Africa Trek has been flipped. Our tour was paved with amazing enthousiasm from viewers and readers. It took us twice the time to have our book translated into english and brought back to where it belongs, than to walk Africa, but it was really worth it. We were reunited again with a lot of our hosts of the first time and the links between us have grown tighter with the years.
