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.

A big scabby rat has taken up residence in the battery compartment of one of our Land Rovers. Yesterday I opened the compartment and saw him scurrying away; today the same thing happened. I must admit Moses and I squealed like little girls when we saw him, but that's more from the fear of Rabies, Bubonic Plague, Weils Disease, Lassa Fever and flees than from the rat himself...Currently the battery is disconnected whilst Moses works on the engine, but when it's reconnected Mr Rat is going to get a big shock when he tries to squeeze through the hole again and brushes against the positive cable which he's nibbled all the insulation off.
