My translator asked me what I would be doing over the Easter Holidays. I told her that I planned to go walking in the hills of Mlilwane Game Reserve. “Oh, you white people,” she replied. “You all want to do extreme sports. We Africans only go to the game reserve to set up camp around the braai, waiting for the meat to be cooked.”

I left the house at 9am and picked up two colleagues, doctors specialising in tuberculosis. We got back home just before 5pm, exhausted. For more photographs, look at Dr Khin’s Facebook page (linked to mine).

Maverick doctor with 40 years experience, I reduced my NHS commitment in 2013. I am now enjoying being free lance, working where I am needed overseas. Now I am working in the UK helping with the current coronavirus pandemic.
