      ... It’s hard. It makes you feel helpless and small sometimes. The work is exhausting, and never seems to end. There are always crises popping up. You have to be on edge putting out fires and watching out for your safety so much of time. Can you begrudge the man a nice chianti? Sometimes all that misery makes you appreciate the finer things all the more. Farmer admits his own eccentricities and quirks, ...

      ... of this lake peaking out from mist just after sunrise, somewhere up a dirt road out of Mukamira. Sometimes life is pretty amazing.

Each sector votes for a leader to manage the group of community health workers, and try as I might to push forward women candidates, we've only had one woman elected out of 11 sectors so far.

      ... hot water. The Taiwanese wanted to go down to Kibuye by boat on Lake Kivu. I didn't mind a little variation in means of transportation so we got up really early to head down to the lake.
