Juliana was out with malaria today. The puppy was better but still sick. She ate some cooked chicken from John's hand. He sleeps in a guest cottage with her every night till she's better. The local doctor stopped by today to let us know he will be studying in Mwanza for the next two years to become a surgeon and ob/gyn--both badly needed here. The local bank here in Bunda lost the 20,000 Tsh Karen deposited to open an account, so we will just give the scholarship students bus fare to Musoma and use our bank there. No problems with them. We have friends in South Carolina who sent gifts to us and to each member of our staff. The staff was so happy. They felt pretty special. They have never received gifts through the mail before. It is a different culture.
