A nice clean and clear description of the lymphatic system. I particularly liked when Jasmine pointed at the areas of the body while using the proper technical terms. Some items have their location and description come up rather late - they are mentioned a few times before being described at all. Overall a pretty good choice of diagrams and histological pictures.
