On the 15th of October bloggers from around the world will be posting for Blog Action Day
This year the theme is water, which having lived on deserts for so many years is close to my heart.
I'll be blogging over at my personal blog, Sandcurves.com on the topic on Sunday.
Africa is the world's second driest continent, and one of the largest water systems, the Congo drainage, occurs where there are relatively few people. Droughts are as much what one envisages when you think of 'Africa' as Lions and sunset cocktails.
