    Please everyone, be very conscious when on a long distance travel. Get up and move around intermittently, or squeeze your toes or better still look , look for TED stockings.

    • thx Charles. U’ve said it all. Long distance travels especialy those that span between 8-15hrs/more require people particularly d old to walk around. God bless u for dat ingenious advice.
