Back from backpacking in the alps

We are back in Addis after backpacking through France, Italy and Switzerland on the Tour de Mont Blanc.  Highly recommended: if you are interested, the details are elsewhere on this site.

I’ve come back buzzing with energy. (Memo to Americans: you guys really need to take more vacation. I reckon they increase my average productivity, aside from the other benefits.)

The normal stream of opinion, lightly diluted with facts, will resume here shortly.

So, what did I miss?

  1. You missed: DFID abandoning many important commitments – including money to education and neglected tropical diseases (which are massively underfunded as it is). Maybe you were back in time as it’s only leaked out (at least to NGOs) in the last couple of days. Sorry to wreck the holiday spirit…
