Busia, Kenya



Tomorrow I am leaving for Busia, Kenia, by way of Barcelona. I am going to work on another project with MSF/Doctors Without Borders. Busia is in Western Kenya, right on the border with Uganda. It is right near the shore of Lake
Victoria. The closest town on the map is Kisumu, which is actually two hours southeast of Busia via car.

I do not know much about MSF's history or current work in Kenya. I do know that the Busia project is another HIV/AIDS project. Like Puerto Barrios, Busia is hot and humid. One of the biggest differences from Guatemala is the prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the area. In Busia, about 15-20% of the population is infected with HIV; Izabal Guatemala has about 1% prevalence. I know nothing about the people I will be living with and working with in Kenya.

I do not know if I will have access to the internet, and if so, how much. My guess is that I will manage to post pictures and bits on this blog every once in a while. Stay tuned...

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no
back up. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it
to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to

I think that everything posted made a bunch of sense. However, what about this?
what if you were to create a awesome headline?
I am not saying your information isn't good., but suppose you added something that makes people desire more? I mean "Busia, Kenya" is kinda vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo's front page and note how they create news headlines to get viewers to open the
links. You might add a video or a pic or two to get people excited about
everything've written. Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
