Today I managed to sell my electric guitar, and have raised more funds towards the expedition. I had an advert up in the local supermarket, and someone phoned to come and see it. Much to my surprise, it turned out to be a friend from college! I am very glad it has gone to a good home - I never really had time to play it as much as I would have liked to. The violin and classical guitar keep me busy enough.
