Visited an irrigation system that the community of Chingali, Malawi put together with World Vision. The crops on the right shows what happens when you're able to provide water to your garden, compared to the desolate and dry conditions on the left. When we returned to our truck to head off to another site, our World Vision guide ever so politely said, "Oh, by the way I forgot to tell you about the crocs. There are many many in that river." "Oh," I said. "Oh." And I left it at that. Sometimes it's better not to know everything.
