Walking Around Tokyo

posted by Carrie on Monday, October 16th, 2006

This morning Carrie and I both woke up incredibly early- because we couldn’t sleep we went down to he hotel restaurant for breakfast. Breakfast was a combination of Japanese and “American” food- eggs, cereal, yogurt, pancakes – and then there was also some sort of smoked fish, Japanese eggs, miso soup and many other […]


Leaving for Japan

posted by Carrie on Saturday, October 14th, 2006

Today I left for Japan- and I am so excited! Of course I didn’t pack until today, so I was a little stressed because of the time - but I got to the airport on time and met up with Carrie, Dominic and Joel. Our flight was overbooked, so it was packed. […]


Back in Afghanistan

posted by Dominic on Wednesday, April 12th, 2006

We arrived in Kabul on Tuesday and all is well. Joel and I had a great visit here last winter and things have picked up where they left off. Local folks have been wonderful and gracious to us despite what continues to be one of the toughest spots on earth to make a life.
The security […]

Walking through minefields (literally)

posted by Dominic on Saturday, April 8th, 2006

I think we had quite possibly the strangest interview scenario of my life today. We decided to take a drive out of Kabul today and head into the countryside to get a sense of things out of the big city. About an hour out of town we spotted a huge field full of red flags. […]


Mavis is who I will think about when I think of South Africa!

posted by Carrie on Saturday, April 1st, 2006

Today is my last day in South Africa - my flight leaves at 11:20 pm. These two weeks have gone by too quickly and again - I am sad to leave. I hope to return to both Tanzania and South Africa someday!
We were up very early this morning and headed to Khayelitsha. We planned […]


Getting ARVs for those living with HIV/AIDS

posted by Carrie on Friday, March 31st, 2006

Today our first appointment/interview was with Linda-Gail Bekker - a South African doctor who works in a clinic under the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation. This clinic is Noordhoek, a suburb of Cape Town- about 10-15 miles from Haut Bay (where we stay). The clinic is actually in the black township of Masiphumelele - […]


Today we went out to Khayelitsha

posted by Carrie on Thursday, March 30th, 2006

Wow, the week is almost over! I’ll be coming home on Sunday- my flight leaves on Sat night, but I won’t be back in MN until Sunday. It’s all gone by too fast!
Today we went out to Khayelitsha. We were up by 5:45 - ugh! But, we wanted to met up with Mavis […]
