congo news

Congo done got the bird flu. Luckily (?), the province where it's been discovered is a long way from here and I haven't eaten chicken here at all. What a mess this is going to be, especially for the women in the market whose entire livelihood depends on their ability to sell poultry.

My friend Jason has a nice piece on exactly how bad things could get in North Kivu if someone doesn't do something soon.
