Blimey - not often you get these in the same day. Today saw a day of elections here in the Philippines, which sadly resulted in the all too predictable deaths of at least 6 people, 3 of whom were shot. When we next feel like moaning about our local councillor it might be worth bearing in mind how lucky we are by comparison to others.
And just now, lying in bed, the earth moved. Sadly for me this was tectonic activity rather than anything else - a 7.5 scale earthquake just hit Western Sumatra which, though a very long way from the Philippines is still in the region.
Back in the Bush on weds morning!
