I just watched this beautiful documentary about the river Niger, retracing the journeys of Mungo Park. Resting on my sofa I was travelling to Djenne, Sansanding and Timbuktu, on beautifully hand crafted barges, crowded ferries and wading through fields of African wild rice. Women with shiny white teeth, the most colourful dresses and strong voices, I was wondering if any of them had ever suffered from an autoimmune disorder. 
They probably don't have the time for something like that.
