    If you ever get to a drug store in Southern Africa, try Zam-Buk. Best lip balm there is. As they say, it's the real makoya!

    I actually think that's the name of the stuff Pieter got for me!

    Do you normally have an issue with a dry nose or did it just happen in Africa? Only time it happens to me is when we go to Las Vegas but it is a pain. Would hate to deal with it for two weeks. Hadn't thought of this.

    For lip balm, I always try to remember Carmex. It not only will protect your lips from drying out, it will also heal them. Forgot the Carmex this past October and picked up a couple other kinds in the Dubai airport, they didn't work.

    Nope. I live in the south where you deal with allergies and a runny nose most of the time. I think the extremely dry air in Namibia caused the dry, bloody nose.

    After having sinus surgery I have learned to love the saline nasal spray no matter where I am located at. From a dry desert area to a high humidly one I have one where I can get to it at all times.

    Even on my flight from the US to South Africa I dug into my carry on to get the spray out after 7 or 8 hours in the air.
