peacea corpo

I've realized that I've been taking mefloquine for more than a year now.....I'm beginning to wonder if my brain chemistrys been messed with in some way.  Is mefloquine a psychotropic drug?  You'll let me know if I act a little weird or speak in funny languages right? 

I was surfing through other peoples xanga sites looking at group pictures and an interesting thought came to my mind:

"Where are the black people?" 

Suppose I've gotten used to seeing black Africans everywhere I go...interesting.

I'm part of a group of volunteers who are peer supporters and during the recent training we were talking about how many of the volunteers feel frustration for always feeling like they are singled out and people stare at them or point at them.  But then its funny because when we see a random white person coming into the village we do the same thing, "we're like who's that, whats she doing here,  oh my gosh she's showing her thighs!"

Hey, I can empathize with all of the meflo craziness and I just switched to doxy myself because... uh... I went crazy. Actually, it's kinda funny I happened upon your blog because I think that we were in Philly together. I'm a health volunteer in Cameroon, got here about a year and... almost 3 months ago now. Actually, there was someone from your group that I wanted to get in contact with because we talked a lot in Phila. and I just wanted to see how things are going. (Brian... I don't know his last name.) Me email is ...If it's possible, if not, don't worry. Hope all is well and safe there. And that there's no famine. :-)

Hey Kwang,

I'll be coming to Malawi with PC in February. I've got some packing questions for you. How can I get in touch?
