Pox of the Chicken

A couple of weeks ago, Anna came out in Chicken Pox. Inevitably, Libby came out earlier this week, and with no previous resistance she has suffered much worse than Anna, and has been awake until 3 or 4am every night scratching. So after a couple of visits to local pharmacists, we now have a cupboard full of anti-itch ointments and medicines, and a bottle of mild sedative which we hope will today knock Libby out for the night. Deep sleep here we come!

We're just back from 2 weeks in Holland, where we house-sat for Sally's sister and had a great time cycling around, and eating ice cream and Pringles. We also met up with Dutch and German friends...the Samarawera's (ex-Caribbean Mercy and current Africa Mercy): Rick and Noah eating ice cream below):

Welcome to Holland...

Yes, we're visiting Sally's sister who lives just outside The Hague...

...where the Heineken is almost as cheap as bottled sparkling water!

4 litres = 5 Euro!


Liberia upgraded

Thank you, Matt Cramer, for this amazing photo of the junction of the two bridges on Bushrod Island going into Monrovia. Newly installed: solar powered traffic lights, and street signs! Wow! Olly
