Niger in the News

Earlier this week there were two suicide bombings in separate cities in northern Niger, high in the desert (very far from us).  One targeted a Nigerien military barracks, the other, a French uranium mine. Niger's president speaks out, read about it here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-22671625

A Cry for Help

It's been two weeks since my last post . . . not because I lack content, but rather it's a time issue.  My Honey-Do lists are quite long . . . and considering the absence of a 'honey', I'm on my own in getting it all done.

Unfortunately there's only so many hours in the day, and when it's a blistering high of 111F/44C, it's hard to be motivated for anything other than napping.

Up Up and Away

'So, I have to go up in the plane today to take some aerial photos of the hospital.  If the pilot is okay with it, would you like to come with me?' I asked B.

He looked up from his lesson on Record Keeping, Documentation and SOAP Notes . . . 'What did you say?' he asked, certain he did not hear me correctly.

'If the pilot agrees to it, would you like to go for a ride in the airplane?'

My assistant, B., smiles . . . a lot . . . but never quite as big as today!
