      HUMANitarian

      ... not always the case. In fact, I would argue that humanitarians can often especially be ******** (see my previous blog post, Magic Muzungu Pixie Dust). Tracy Kidder talks a lot about this in his book on Paul Farmer of Partners in Health, "Mountains Beyond Mountains". By the way, if you haven’t read it, DO IT. It’s a really honest and eloquent portrayal of global health work, a lovingly ...

      The Happy Valley

      ... There were a lot of kids listed as beneficiaries at this distribution—apparently there are a lot of orphaned refugees who have crossed the nearby border from DRC here. Here in Rwanda, some sense of normalcy has been in place for long enough that after a while, you start to forget that you are in a formerly war torn place, surrounded by current and recent war torn places. These kinds of prompters jar you back into place and remind you why you’re ...

      In the Land of Project Rwanda Bikes

      ... everyone here says sorry (komera) compulsively; people don’t like to eat in public; people sweep and clean rather constantly and are quite hygienic and don’t like putting things on the floor; there’s very much a sense of communal-ness/ taking one for the team. AKA ALL OF MY WEIRD NEUROSES AND QUIRKS ALREADY EXIST HERE AND ARE TOTALLY NORMAL! So weird, but also awesome!

      I have to say, the last few months of my life have been ...

      ... of generally irreverent, I thought. As we talked it came out that one of the Rwandese men was from the area, and as more and more came out, I read between the lines that either he must have been a genocidaire (French/Kinyarwanda for someone a genocide perpetrator), or if he was too young at the time, then his family had been genocidaires. They asked us to get a drink with them afterward, and I could not do anything but politely refuse. I just couldn’t. This is something I ...

      Always a bleeding heart, even through red tape

      ... and, to top it all off, these lists are handwritten, some in pencil. It’s like a drunk person was slurring through the dictation of the names to another drunk person who speaks no Kinyarwanda or French and is also illiterate. Bureaucrats everywhere should be shedding a tear. Serious question, for the “most developed country in Africa”, how does this country get anything done??? An even more serious question, how is any other less well off ...
