Our trip to Mpumalanga in July proved tough and, hopefully, productive. Mpumalanga is not big on signage for their clinics, so we spent a lot of time lost (despite careful planning and maps!), and met many people, what with asking directions a million times. Regardless we managed to visit over thirty clinics and hospitals, and travelled 1 204 km in our five days there.
