Yesterday we crossed into the tiny country of Swaziland. I said tiny as it measures just 200 x 130 km. Half of it is made up of steep mountains with the roads leading over 1600 meter high passes. Swaziland was always separate from South Africa and in the days of Apartheid and strict laws, many South Africans came here to let their hair down as they ...
... Planet to see what to do for our next leg to Mozambique. An expensive visa ($80 per person), plus we need 2 triangles, 2 reflective jackets, an SA sticker for the car, and who knows what else. If it's anything like Cameroon, it'll be made up on the spot. Looking forward to trying to get out of bribing the police when we don't have a word of Portugese between us.

... In a cupboard was a collection of time expired dental materials and a 1968 dental product catalogue. One big sort-out later, and there was much more space in the room. The surviving pieces of the chair still worked and about a tenth of the materials are useable. We're a long way from a functioning dental surgery. Now begins the unexciting job of sourcing a load of kit, getting ...
