Okavango outline...

Owsblog has just had its first visitor from Botswana. It is also my 175 country. I can also say that I have had visits from no less than 13,050 cities. Yippee.

For info: the Okavango Delta, which is in NW Botswana, is the world's largest inland delta (click on image for Wiki page). The Batswana have had great success in reducing HIV transmission from infected mothers - down from nearly 40% to just 4% - however, because of AIDS, general life expectancy, which is 1984 was 60 years of age, has dropped to 35. Tuition fees? Cuts? Jeez.
