After four years in Rwanda and DR Congo I was diagnosed with myalgic encephalomyelitis in Oct ‘08. Following two years in Malta, I moved to Melbourne, Australia where I found a doctor who diagnosed fructose intolerance and - eventually - Lyme Disease. My health improved, I returned to work, and next week I'm going back to my former life on the Big Island of Hawaii. Take a look at older posts (2004-2008) for stories & photos from Africa.

16 June 2006: Day of the African Child. Former child soldiers in Bukavu. Their sign reads: "Pour un Congo sans enfant soldat" (for a Congo without child soldiers).
