Burning rubbish.

Smoke rises from the rubbish tip at Bakoti. It burns round the clock and the smoke and smell spread for miles. Children scavange the rubbish for items to sell - plastic bottles, re-usable bags, anything that might fetch a few dalasis. Directly across the road from the tip is the S.O.S. Children's Village - a wonderful institution which looks after the welfare of orphans in a manner which puts us in the U.K. to shame - read up about it, or, better still, visit it for yourself when you travel to The Gambia. Just remember to hold your breath if the wind's in the wrong direction ...

Back in the UK

Another trip over. Good news - and, sadly, some bad news. Hope the good outweighs the bad. Very tired, not much food in the house but sleep is the major need! Tell you more when we wake up!
