We have covered 6,000 km, and found 27 different species of Solanum. Our car suffered 6 punctures! Everyone is very tired. We drove back to Dar es Salaam today to process our collections and get ready to leave Tanzania the day after tomorrow. It will be very strange to be back in London after travelling around Tanzanian for 23 days.

I'm Maria Vorontsova from the Botany Department. Join me as I head to Tanzania and Kenya to hunt for wild spiny aubergines. I'm looking forward to an interesting journey, some interesting company and some interesting finds.
