Greetings from showery Kilifi where I am living in splendid isolation with my cat, frog in the sink, possibly thousands of termites in the spare room (some recently exterminated but not cleared up yet) and visiting mothers and babies (monkeys) in the garden.
Healthcare training at Juliana's house
My plans for fieldwork and community engagement in Jaribuni have had to be postponed since last week when all non-essential activities at the research unit were stopped and most of us were told to work at home. Fortunately, I have plenty of writing to be going on with, though my laptop battery has died so I need the power to be on in order to work.
