Sorry everyone for my lack of postings this week! The internet has been down, so despite my best efforts, I have not been able to post. So, I will try and catch you up quickly. I guess I should start by letting you know that I have Malaria. My roommate and I both have a case of it. I must say that as miserable as malaria is, the treatment for malaria is even worse. The medicine has made me sicker than the illness. I am hopefull that the worst of it is behind me. I will get tested again to see if this series of treatment took care of it. The other news this week is that I learned that I will be losing the place I live. My landlord is selling the house, and has told my roommate and I we must be out by January 1st. So, nothing is easy in Africa, but hopefully this week I will get over the malaria and find a place to live.
Oh yes, also, malaria or no malaria the girls at Mattaw still like to play beauty parlor and braid my hair. Just watch out for Gracie though, she usually walks off with a fist full. They dream of getting me in a full set of corn rows, and any time I sit, they immediately start working on it. If I ever take a nap, no telling what I will find when I wake up.
