‘MAXDOG’ HAS A DREAM ...
I have a dream ...
Of friends far and wide
I have a dream ...
They will be at my side ...
Where I can show my country – its bountiful delights:
The animals, the plants and so many sites!
To take in its cultures, it’s food, its sun,
To show my guests that Africa is fun!
I dream of laughter, of happiness, of care
I dream my joy in my country, which they can share.
I dream of dancing, music and good –
Of one big family ... one big brood.
They came, they saw, they shared my dream
A dream dreamt by all of us ... or so it would seem.
So THANK YOU, my guests, for just being you
My dream for Africa has just come true!
RULES FOR THE "GIVE-AWAY" COMPETITION
In celebration of the birth of the international MAXDOG JOURNEY, I am running a small competition this week. You have a chance to
WIN A BEAUTIFUL, AUTOGRAPHED COPY OF MAXDOG!
Since Max was a 'cyber-tour-guide', we would like you to be the same - for a moment - in the comments section of this blogpost. Simply share something interesting about your own country? It can be historical, social, funny, food-related, sports related, geographical, etc...absolutely anything! Something that we'd all enjoy reading. Tell us where you come from and why your country is the best place on earth :)
Remember... to leave your own blog's address at the bottom of your comment, or indicate where I can contact you. Please would you also tell all your friends about this competition - to come here and enter.
This give away competition will close at midnight on Friday 25th May 2012 - GMT 24h00 +2 - and the winner will be announced on Monday 28th May 2012.
I will be reading all your comments on this blogpost, and together with my family, we will choose the one which we think is the most original.
I look forward to posting a copy of my book to one lucky person.
(Please note: If you have already read MAXDOG, or already own a book, please still enter! If you win the book, you are welcome to give it to someone less fortunate. The whole point of this competition is to generate a sense of 'patriotism' and fun - whilst we learn about the various countries in our wonderful world. Luv C)
Our work is done and our mission complete.
All that remains now is for MAXDOG to be embraced by the world.
"Wherever MAXDOG goes, let it do good!"
