Lily enjoyed the first few drops of rain. Temperatures dropped 20-30 degrees F.
Bayo had a blood test done this morning. Result: typhoid. He immediately started taking an antibiotic for that. He has also had some tooth pain and sinus pain. We contacted our dentist via email. He told us to come on out, and he would see if he could figure out the problem. It's about an hour's drive to the dentist. I decided that we'd all go because Bayo was really in no condition to drive himself. I had the camera along so I asked Bayo to take a few shots here and there.
The dental clinic is run by a missionary dentist in a village outside of Jos. About 10 years ago the road was newly tarred, and it only took about 30 minutes to get there. The road has basically disintegrated now. I wasn't just hitting potholes; I was entering swimming pools!
I finally decided to drive like the locals: abandon what used to be the main road and drive on the dirt track on the side of the road. It's much faster!
There are many beautiful rock formations in the countryside.
Remember, this used to be a tarred road!
As we came back to Jos, we took photos so you can see that our city roads are actually quite good. This road leads into Jos.
This is one of our major roads through town.
This is a street in a residential part of town.
