I shall be flying to Cape Verde in a week's time and have therefore been collecting the last presents to take for the children of Calheta.
Sérgio has today given me two T-shirts for Ismael and a toy that made the delight of many over the years. He has also given me the money to provide for the school material he might need. Surama has also given me a two piece outfit (shirt and cardigan) for Neuza, to which I have added a doll bought with some of the money Luisa provided me with. It will soon be my protegée's birthday, so I couldn't help but buying her a present as well (a pair of long red shorts and a T-shirt) to add to the things I had already bought for her.
