The Woodchopper still in Kabala Forest

Good Day!

Many of you have watched our Woodchopper Youtube video about Abu living in the forest of Kabala, chopping and selling wood cheap to those who need it for fire to cook. The link to this video is: or click on the SaloneNHA videos at the right and find the video labeled "woodchopper".

James bumped into the Woodchopper again on his last visit to Kabala a week ago.

Anyway, Abu is doing well, except, unfortunately someone has stolen his bag with all of his belongings in it. We hope to meet up with him when we are next in Kabala.
