Fourteenth Annual East African Schools' Picnic - Lane Cove River National Park, Sydney, Australia
27 October 2013

Another year and once again a number of former East Africans and their close associates chose to attend the All East African Schools picnic at the same venue where past picnics had been held - namely the Lane Cove River National Park in Sydney. This is now a regular calendar event on the 4th Sunday in October. While we have familiar faces among the group it is always heartening to see new ones make an appearance. And so it was the case this year. A popular newcomer was Old Cambrian Drake Shikule who distributes Tusker Lager and other EABL products throughout Sydney.

Once again mingi asante sanas to my Tanganyikan rafiki and regular attendee (except this time!) Nick Croft (St Michael's & St George's, Iringa) for hosting these photos on his Web site.
