The Island People

Here is Alpha Two's journey so far...

The early bird catches the worm.

Pirates of the Caribbean eat your heart out!

The office.

Learning to weave Nepa leaves.

Our teachers

Living Quarters.

Raleigh: it's not a package holiday.

Camp fire.

A spot of evening entertainment with the locals.

Stay tuned for photos of Alpha's Three and Four!

Hey Abi (alpha 2),

Just been showing the pictures of the island to everyone at work, they are all so jealous! Looks like an amazing place! I'm off to Belgium this evening, pretty excited, wish it was for more than just a few days!

Look forward to hearing from you soon, I'm missing you so much! Love you Mike xxxx

Message for Alex (Alpha 4)
Alex
Yes, its your computer -illiterate father very excited having received a letter from the jungle, and in joined-up handwriting, too!!! That studying really paid off.Maybe one of the bears helped you. I will write(via mail) to you today, but my First Project was to master this message business. Jane guided me through-after several attempts of my own. I think I am now signed up to most major international E-Mail providers. Such talent in one so young! Those bears sound cool! Lovely to be doing good for dumb animals - anyway, enough about me.
Looking forward to my birthday - who would think I will be 42yrs old! It looks as if you are being completely spoilt with food and accomodation.Is it even making my cooking look reasonable? Probably not. Will drop you a line daily. Sorry incompetence triumphed over sense for a while but nothing can stop me now! My next Project is Operation Waitrose, Wandsworth. My injections are up to date!!!
Big hug and lots and lots of kisses!
Dad xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Happy 18th for Wednesday!

I must say I'm loving the Borneo attire; the Ghandi sandals and the cricket hat is a magical combination!

Checking the website regularly, it looks incredible.
Keep up the good work and have a great birthday!

Hi Abi! Just to let you know this might be the last message for a bit as we are unsure of the computer / internet situation in Kilifi. I don't think there are facilities at the hotel but there may be an internet cafe in the town. Pleased to hear you've successfully completed stage 1 - Mike and his dad brought everything back from Bouverie Street last night! We'll continue to send letters. Enjoy the next phase.
Lots of love from Mum, Dad and Simon xxxxx
