A travel blog entry by pietrasanta on Jul 04, 2015

... was asking me if I wanted to, but I'm still recovering from Kili and just wanted to sit in the car for a nice sight seeing ride.

... before I nearly went again and this one was saved by some vitamin C sweets that I stuck into my cheeks to get sugar to me as quick as possible. The nurse (who's name I did ask but forgot during the commotion) was so lovely and just amazing to us despite my rather embarrassing turn. It's a free clinic so she didn't want any money but we left a very generous donation in a clinic donation box as it was quite an experience, she was amazing and plus they take 1000 people per ...
