    ... at Haymarket. (A monument stands in Chicago today on the site of the Haymarket massacre as it’s also called.) In any event May 1st is widely observed in the world and I found, pretty well observed in Côte d’Ivoire. The city center was quiet, with most shops closed.

    ... on his desk with a broken leg; I volunteered my veterinary skills, took the hippo back to the clinic (aka my room) and performed surgery to fix the broken leg (aka used some superglue).
