... Oddly, just the knowledge that we had these first world post-pubescent pre-med students with at least a week of medical experience in Tanzania available to us for advice if Dave's condition worsened, provided a substantial sense of security (merited or not). Desperate times, mean lowered expectations.

The Baobab’s are mostly in flower. A wonderful picture in ...
