How to slide through a war-zone roadblock

I remember a story about how a woman imprisoned in Auschwitz was thankful for the infestation of fleas. The infestation was so bad that it kept the guards out of the barracks and as such, made the women’s lives easier.

Check out this story from the Guradian’s Bethan McKernan about beekeepers in Yemen. Not only are they keeping bees without a suit–something I wouldn’t survive with my pissy girls–but they do it in a war-torn land of political upheaval. It has some parallels to the story of the fleas in Auschwitz.

I hope you enjoy it.
