Power came back last night and then went out again this morning. It's back on now after a ten hour outage. Lusi came down with malaria this morning here at the house. She got faint. She kept saying, "malaria, wazungu", so I thought she was saying white people gave her malaria. Then I remembered that the term "mzungu" actually means someone who goes in circles and accomplishes little. What she was really saying was, "zungu, zungu" which meant she was feeling dizzy. We got her to the hospital and she is now at home resting. Probably will be back on Monday or Tuesday. I will give a $10 reward (c'mon, I'm not Bill Gates) to anyone who can cure malaria.
