Birre-Liten isn't a big hunter though. After he was neutered he's become a bit lazy (has gained weight too) and prefers staying inside or around the house. He meets his girlfriend nearly every day - she lives next door - and the funny is she looks the same as him, but she's smaller.

Beautiful bougainvillea outside one of the hotels.
NNC arranged a Card Exchange and I signed up. I had never done any exchange - not even made a card - so I was quite excited about it. My exchange partner was Ying - an avid card maker (take a look at her blog and you'll see). Materials for card making is not available here, so I had to use my brain... I ended up buying a sheet of carton, paper knife and a pinking shears. The latter is not sharp enough at the tip! :( I covered the carton with fabric, and I did two pieces of cross-stitching. After quite some trials and errors I finally ended up with a homemade card. Here's the front...
...and here's inside the card.

Sunrise at Corps de Garde - 719m (2359 ft) above sea level. It has its name from a French military post that was established there to control the bands of runaway slaves. St. Pierre Mountain and the west coast in the background.
The hot and humid air of summer is gone. For the last couple of weeks the early mornings have been chillier and the air crispier - if I can say it like that - living just north of Tropic of Capricorn. I love this time of the year - it reminds me of Norwegian summers.
