It's not a matter of getting it to people's homes, it's hard to get it to the actual communities.

Your battered, old 4x4 is the only vehicle.

Here are some of the villages you need to vaccinate.

It could be worse.

You could be trying to vaccinate everyone in this little place just north of Kano. Roads are good. Local contacts are nervous.

Cold chains are a bitch.

Even things that don't need a cold chain can be a problem given that room temperature is a good 10C higher than US/Europe so things degrade faster than their use by date would suggest.

Yesterday I learned that the Yorkshire Dales has signs up warning of fire risk and asking everyone not to smoke.

That's new (to me).

There are a lot of similar signs in the Peak District as well.

... that I shouldn't cycle along that route this week, because there's a large burdock just there.

Pardon the fruit smell. I just soaked my arm in hand sanitiser.

Anybody want six burdock seeds?
