This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Stolen manhole covers

Over the weekend, several manhole covers have been stolen from the main highway outside the Port, leaving 6 foot deep potholes for traffic to negotiate (which is not easy in the dark at high speed). Steeling manhole covers is an unfortunate by-product of extreme poverty. When they are eventually replaced, the new covers will be welded down to prevent their theft, which in turn makes it impossible to gain access to the sewer system...Olly
