About 30 years ago we already knew we had to get out of Europe. Took some time to make it happen. And guess what? They'll never see me again there.
How do I spend my free time? Well, all my time is free time. We got quite a big place here and the garden needs daily maintenance. Same for the vegetable garden. I plant trees where ever I can. Even outside the compound. Jump in the pool every now and then to relax my battered back. Permanent damage from too much/too long work. If time allows me I'll be in my workshop teaching my (adopted) son some woodworking skills and all kinds of other crafts. Clever little bastard he is. Great fun. This is Gambia, so education is a bit poor, better try and give him a head start. Two times a year (before and after the rain season) I drive around collecting broken blocks and do some road maintenance. That never stops because The whole of The Gambia is one big termite hill. We go to the beach every now and then, just to relax at a beach bar or do some fishing. When we first came here we had to drive 30 km to get some internet. Now we have internet at home, so I'm up to date with all the misery in the world. The west and the globalist are fucking it up big time. Here, whenever I meet somebody with some authority, I always tell them to stop listening to the west. The "West" don't give a damn shit about you. The Covid shit did not get a strong foothold here. They try, but Gambians are not interested, they have bigger problems. About my free time: I need more. Too much things to do.
