You've probably heard this phrase before: Hakuna matata. It's Swahili (one of Kenya's official languages) for "no worries."
"No worries" is just the opposite of how I feel tonight. I haven't been able to get online in three days. I'm running out of money. And I'm not sure I've found all the information I need to really understand Dr. Pascual's research.
I visited with a family who lives nearby this afternoon. I could hear the baby crying as I came up the path to their house. Her mom apologized for the noise. "Amondi is usually quiet, but she has malaria. It's made her very uncomfortable." Uncomfortable? My stomach turned. I asked about medicine. "Too expensive for us," the mother said. "She will be fine."
