Finaly I am Back in dear old Sweden! benn visiting my brother in Göteborg the first week and am now residing at my parents home in Stockholm.

Here is a small greeting to you who are still IN St vincent, and all you other great DI:s… Peace, Love and Gods rich blessings. /Bob


Hi guys, last week we had a welcome party for the new people at RVA, we decided to make it a costume-fantasy-wow-party… and all this obviously involves a whole lot of dancing… check out the video.

Bob as Kurt Cobain’s… lost brother!

Hi Guys here is a small greeting from St Vincent, this time I am not in a hospital but inside a Volcano… exiting every time! Actually I wish I could stay here for another two months… but hey every now and then reality kicks you in you butt. Peace out peeps.

Had a nice travel back to St Vincent. Traveled with emirates (the best airline) who gives you these small stickers at the flight [pic] so that the frlight-attendants knows what to do with sleeping people… love it.
Also Spent like 27 hours at Gatwick airport being generally bored, which you can see by looking at what I done after drinking a huge bowl of coffee. Anyways now I am back in the caribbean… so far loving it.

Hi Internet!..(When people write in their diary they write “dear diary” which sounds a bit unintelligent… So, me writing “Hi Internet” aint that bad if you compare!… its not like I am going to ask the internet to join me for a cup of coffee later on!) Its about two weeks left until I fly back to Suecia for Christmas. And although I am returning I still get this going-away-feeling that suddenly makes you appreciate the place a bit more than usual. The 16th of February… around lunchtime I will arrive in Arlanda airport… wow, I can’t even imagine hearing people around me speaking Swedish, For sure, its going to be wonderful coming home. See you guys in 2 weeks. /Bob

[pic]My hair is a mess!

[pic]And here is Leons birthday present to me… a nice drawing.

Last Monday Leon left Muzuane and at the moment I am the only DI (volunteer) over here. Got a big house and huge beach all to myself and AH sooo boring! Miss you Leon and wish you all the best. Right now my project leader decided to go for a holiday to Brazil, the students finished their exams and are coming back in December for graduation and I am finishing some presentation-movies for this school… which at the moment is quite empty.


Yes… as you might have heard this is my main job, making small movies. But don’t be fooled, I am simply an amateur not a Spielberg or a Bas, so when putting things up on YouTube (hopefully this Christmas) don’t expect too much. (Ha ha, bob, don’t you have any confidence?!)… Well, you have to see for yourselves (OOO)


Anyways here is a pic of Leon and me… miss you man and.. Kamsamida

Yesterday I had the privilage of being at iris ministries a whole day, finaly got my heart broken through a time of worship, testimonies, teching… and more worship… wow, New life I miss you! Thanks to Danielle Wallander who is going through a trainnig school there and put in a good word for me, I spent a great day there, also hanging with other students from all over the world. Right now I am in Pemba, but I have to leave tomorow back to my home… Muzuane, Nacala Porto… I miss that home aswell now


Here is a picture of Daniella and me… we went out a group of people eating pizza, talking about Ywam (its a a small world!), Mozambique and why in the world we didnt get our food untill 2 hours later!

Mango season is upon Moçambique and man are we eating mangos! The availability of fruit and vegetables is more natural here, meaning things are only available in the market when they are in season… so lastmonth oranges where still growing but not anymore and so now they can’t be found. However fortunately there is always something nice and sweet in season for Bob to put his teeth in to. (Bob, do you often refer to yourself in third person?!?)  (… I don’t know do I ?) (Bob do you often write things in brackets?) (You tell me… I don’t think so!) Over here the Local Langue is Makua, and right now I have a Makuan name: Makaliha (meaning helper) funny because when I did my DTS in South Africa I got a name with the same significance: Ntedo.
Anyways I have been away from Sweden now for around 14
months and there are some things I haven’t had or done in
over a year. Like: Taking a hot shower, eating a bulle or
wearing jeans… but then again I haven’t spent a week without
going to the beach, enjoying the sun, seen a palm tree and
eating fresh fruit so It’s all good in the hood. By the way
I owned one single sweater and I gave it away, so Mum… for
Christmas please bring some warm clothes to the airport when
you pick me up.
About 30 minutes ago I met Danielle Wallander at Iris
ministries… I came a bit unnoticed and we decided to go for
Pizza later tonight… will be fun just to speak some Swedish
and hang out … and hey it was nine months ago since I last had
pizza… =) Tomorrow we will maybe go for the beach here in Pemba
which is said to be the third most beautiful in the world… on the
planet, in the Universe… me, here wow!
Até logo (see you later)


Here is a picture of my friends as we where on “the island of mozambique”

Holland is in the WORLD CUP FINALS!!!… in the biggest and most famous sport in the world… my home country is soooo good (great Bob, why do you not live there!…) Thanks to God and our neighbor here we are able to see the games, and man has it been exiting, the thrill that pumps through your brain as the Motherlands defeats its foes, and departs triumphantly from the theatre of war … this sounds like I am way beyond football… (only ignorant Americans still call it soccer)… Ok anyways on Sunday is the big Game against Spain, Oranje boven

Picture of us watching the game. The Koreans and Mozambiqueans are supporting me… obviously since I bribed them with the chocolate cake that’s on the table.

Mozambique Africa, I have now been in Mozambique for four months and this is more and more becoming my home, I know many people in the community and every time I walk the roads people (especially children) are calling out my name (Bobbi), I am actually finding myself helping others with directions and information… and although I am soooo looking forward to come home for Christmas to dear Sweden I am slowly managing a good life over here. Typical European needs (such as internet, nice clothes, food for pleasure and control of time) are fading away in my, oh so intelligent brain and my Portuguese is also catching up.


So What is Bobbi up to nowadays?… well, I am swimming 3 days a week in the ocean, by the beach, by the sandy sunny and GAH- beautiful beach… working on my own funny projects half of the day and concentrating on the work of the school the other half of the day, going to the crazy market once a week to buy food and whatever else I need, looking at the series of “24” … I am now on season 3, following the world cup of Football, fixing my ever so long hair, baking cakes, making pizza, eating pizza, discovering a new world of food (such as cassava, octopus and a bunch of new fruits) and enjoying the company of the other DI:s (Development Instructors) Am loving it over here. Miss you guys a lot.

/peace out


Me in the morning, looking like Kurt Cobain!!

Last Saturday we had our goodbye party… and I shared A poem… from my heart…


RVA as we have seen…

Is a great school for those who likes to clean.

Clean the halls clean the kitchen and every other kind of dirty source.

Even picking up the shit from the God damn Horse!

It’s even a place to learn a thing or two,

Like how to download movies and enjoying the amazing view.

Every now and then we have to prepare some food for eating

Or attend an annoying class or another boring meeting.

For some reason we are prepared to face Africa after the time here

I guess It does take much to work as a volunteer

Now everyone has my song sticked into their heads… hehe

Ok friends this video has nothing to do with me at all (I know its disappointing not to see me in all the videos !!) But I have to brag a little as far as the editing is conseaarned… yes I did it. The beginning is the best part, I got the idea (if you are still interested and amazingly enough still are reading this jabberi…) from Scrubs where many new scenes are introduced with a swoosh sound… haha  I am so nerdy! anyways here it is:

Yep life in paradise is hard! … we actually have to do stuff!

So I am in the Carribean… but a part of dear Sweden still lives in my heart… So I made something Swedish… a pepparkakshus! (ginger-bread-house) Hurray, Happy Lucia everyone
