    ... video and photos, but had I done so I would likely either have been shot myself or to have had a close encounter with a cattle prod. Being shot might be the preferable choice. In any event you’ll have to take my word for it about how interesting the base is.

    We came to Sophie’s house which I had visited once before, and found her convalescing after a bout with Malaria. It had hit her two weeks earlier and she still wasn’t back to 100%. She asked that ...
