my banda

I wanted to share one last photo today for you guys, here is where I sleep at Mpala.  It is a stone hut, called a banda, with electricity from 6pm-10pm.  We sleep under mosquito nets because malaria is possible here, but not prevelant.

Last thing, last night a gigantic spider (ok, maybe about an inch and 1/2 with legs) fell on my arm while I was asleep.  It had crawled up the mosquito net from the floor and fell from the top- he was heavy enough to wake me up!  You experience so many memorable moments here, (sometimes tremendous and beautiful, sometimes really hard, and sometimes just gross)...
