A: Ampersands, or, a supper of gin&tonic and M&Ms.
On a work note I have nothing but good things to say about our local government District Health people. Not only have they kept their word and continue to supply more than enough fuel to run the ambulance we donated to the clinic, started HIV testing, counselling and ARV facilities, they are now coming up trumps with disposable supplies for malaria testing once we supply a microscope. It just shows that governments are more than willing to invest in basic needs once they have the opportunity. I just hope debt relief begins to loosen the coffers at the District Education Board, even getting a reply from them is like getting blood out of a turnip.

"Ok, that's it, I'm coming for that camera."
See it and weep! That thar is the POOL at the lodge we stayed at in South Luangwa National Park. Look, look at all that water! Bliss. Especially with a constant parade of lion, hippo, elephant, antelope etc trooping past on that dusty bit in the background.
