~ @COSMIC RHINO:

 

There have been several recent articles suggesting that an untreatable strain of cholera is spreading in East Africa.

 

The news above intensifies one's concern about such health issues.

there has been no major international coverage

 

it is not desireable but follow the advice regarding food, water and hand washing

IMHO, given Kenya's already fickle situation it's best not to scare people any further ....... especially, since it doesn't appear to be anything serious.

When I read that, I laughed aloud.

 

You have a way with words...which I like and admire.

 

Thank you!

Hoping you'll be practicing what you preach soon.  Maybe at Lewa again?

Yes I am really looking foward to getting back to Lewa, although Nairobi security is a bit of a concern , I trust that things will be ok
