He died today. A Malian of note, he was a famous musician and the mayor of the town of Niafunké (near Timbuktu). I was a big fan of his.

If the conservatives win the election, i am not coming back to Canada. I am getting used to Africa anyway.

hey y'all

just to let u know i am alive n kicking.

i ended up in the hospital last monday with a bad case of malaria. actually the malaria started on the wednesday of the previous week and i thought it had been cured, but it came back....fuuuuck!

anyway, on a wing and prayer i went to the hospital using my last ounce of strength. there, the good doctor hooked me up to an IV, to which i remained connected for the next 4 days! i was just released last night and as soon as i got home i had me a nice glass of beer and a tomato sandwich.

africa...it is just indescribably crazy here. sometimes i hate it but most times i tell myself i dont want to come home anymore (not for a long time anyway). in february i am going to timbuktu via cargo ship (the journey takes 2-4 days and you sleep on sacks of rice) and in march i am going to visit friends in Dakar! i am most excited by these plans.

today i am going to the tailor to have outfits made from the fabrics i have acquired. tonight i am going to the bar with some canadians from the embassy. this weekend if i have energy i would like to go see a live show somewhere.

incidentally, i have had a very brief platonic love affair with a cameroonian doctor, but nothing has come of it. i trust we shall remain friends.

love, anna
