Thirsty work
Aaah, relief. Even though the weather is brilliant today (around 20 degrees,) the team has managed to work up an impossible thirst -- which isn't all that surprising considering we've been walking around, lugging gear, for the past hour and a half. While Adil was shooting pictures at one of the on-site clinics, a kindly doctor offered us all water. I chugged two bottles in rapid succession. No special treatment here, though, as all manner of security personnel and health care professionals are distributing bottles of water and/or juice to anyone who wants or needs it.
