"A patient man will eat ripe fruit." African Proverb

From Africa to the internet, from the internet to Africa, no matter the direction both are much cheaper than airfare, but nowhere near as sweet. How fortunate it is though that in the absence of flying, surfing the web is pretty darn good!

It has taken a while to cultivate but now the Brain Tree Primary School facebook page is ready! A simple way to keep connected and informed with up-to-date news and photos is right here: http://www.facebook.com/BrainTreePrimarySchool

Something else is growing too. An updated website at www.braintreesesaw.org is ripening in the internet garden. Slowly but surely and sooner rather than later, there will be a harvest.

And just maybe one day, the story of how Kyanja got its name will be published. Countless hours and days were spent editing the documentary (months ago, last year actually!) only to discover more of the story is needed from the elders of Kyanja village. With so much going on at Brain Tree the Kyanja story of the past is on hold while the Kyanja of today is growing like a banana tree. And because Uganda grows as much patience as bananas, it has taught me that waiting for what is good to ripen on its own is the only way to sweet success.

A patient woman eats ripe fruit too. (Lori Proverb)
