Remember all that ranting I was doing?

Well, it all felt a bit silly after Monday's dinner with two American Peace Corps. girls who were visiting from Mali, Africa. Somehow my little mosquito problem (which hasn't completely gone away) seemed SO pathetic after listening to tales of dysentery, malaria and worms. The most shocking story was about a boy who had a worm that decided to poke through his penis and he had to use a wooden stick to twist it out. This specific type of worm causes profuse itching, but you can't use any water to soothe the pain because it breeds when put in water.

Reality Check, Court. You can handle one measily mozzie. And "handle it" I did (see brown speck in the photo).
