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.

I was on the phone for almost an hour, gazing out the window the while, watching nothing more than a couple of ships. Turned to go make my breakfast, and, a mere 15 minutes later as I'm setting the plate on the table by the window, look up in shock to see this enormous rig passing by. It is far larger when seen from my window than how it appears in the photo (I went up to snap these shots from the roof).
And just in case you're wondering - I know it looks lovely and sunny, but the temperature today is 15C/59F, and indoors without heating it feels quite chilly!
