The apartment is on the country side – from my balcony is a clear view of Lake Victoria. The sunset looks beautiful. The reflection of the sun on the water. 🙂 God I love nature.

“Javie, Karen, dinner is serving now” my sister is calling out – dinner time.
Karen and I rush to our little dinning room.
Its a beautiful evening and we all are in dinner mood. What more can one demand?
