Off to Congo & Rwanda

The  day has arrived .. well almost.

I go tomorrow to one of the most beautiful yet tragic parts of Africa.

Rwanda's genocide is well known, as indeed is the fact that we stood by and let another Holocaust happen in front of us.

What is less well known is that Congo's ongoing civil wars have cost more lives than all of the other conflicts in the world. Put together.

Watching the terrible scenes in Gaza and the media and political focus that they brought and continue to generate, well I'll let you make the obvious comparison. We are all equal, but some more so than others.

Anyway thanks for reading, but for now dear reader, goodbye. From our Bush back to the African Bush...
