... grids. Each time it died, the group of us clinging on for dear life were thrown forward and ended up in a heap. My right arm hasn't felt the same since. At the 'bus stop' - a term I use very loosely as we were stood at the edge of a field, in the rain, being eaten by mosquitos - a group of us discovered we were all heading in the same direction and teamed up.

This year alone 8 have died, 1 last week from carbon monoxide but they think he might have been drunk so didn't realise it was toxic. The sad truth is that most miners will suffer from silicosis and don't live past 40. But we did meet the oldest miner there at 65 who's worked the mines for 35years.
