Weight watching

Just about everything I need to survive two months in The Gambia. I have 46kg of baggage allowance to play with, which sounds like a lot but at least 20kg of that will be taken up with equipment. I had a minor panic attack when I weighed all this lot and thought it came to 28kg, then realised the scales were reading in lbs.

The next problem, of course, is carting it around, given that 46kg is 73% of my own bodyweight - for the first time in my life I wish I was an ant.
