Our gardener has left. Find a replacement was so simple. All you have to do is ask at Jawla’s Beach Bar and the local ex-pats will recommend someone. Anyway, Abdouline started on Monday. The difference he has made is incredible. The previous ‘boy’ (he may have been 40 but any man who works in a compound is called a boy) had to be told to do everything. Abdouline has weeded, levelled ground, cleaned the pool and swept the patio and verandah every day without being asked! In four days he has done more than the previous guy did in a month. It shows that you don’t have to put up with second best in The Gambia.
