"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


a sinking feeling

So there's this Congolese doctor who periodically emails me love letters (from the last one: "I await your response knowing that the most beautiful girl cannot give me that which she has.").

Not wanting to encourage him, I generally just ignore them. But today I've reached a point in my research where I'm writing about his hospital. And I have a question that we didn't cover in our interview. Which means that I need to email him.

There has to be another way to figure this out.

Where's the hospital, and how soon do you need your answer?

Bukavu, within the next month or so. You're not going back, are you?

I think I might. Not to work just for a, you know, holiday.

Oh, okay. Have you been to Buk? It's lovely there, and you can actually go to Kahuzi-Biega unlike certain other Congolese national parks these days.
