The first hospital buildings encountered were hidden behind huge mounds of impenetrable nettles and brambles. However the tarmac of the perimeter roads was still sound, which provided an easy way around these thorny walls.

We made our way quickly to the main hospital buildings at which point the brambles gave way to thick grass. We were anxious to get in; although the buildings would hide us from security, we mainly wanted to shield ourselves from the overbearing heat.
