This week my brother started his own blog about being a surgeon in the notorious Mpumalanga province in South Africa. Three rich posts in only the first week make my own blog-rate of about 3 a year look rather dismal. Also the content is very interesting, dealing with the hard issues of facing death in an environment that seriously increases the chances of death by violence (read the blog for details!).

And his text is very well written, to the extent that I'm almost able to ignore the strict lack of capitalization :-)
