Just a few words to let you know that I’m about to begin another adventure. On February 18th I take off for Paris where I will meet my pals, Lars and Nirin and together we are going to Madagascar. (I have no idea what is going on with this blog…but it’s definitely not doing what I want it to do!) Nirin’s family is from there and he’s also a doctor…..and I love that! Especially since the news out of Madagascar is that the bubonic plague (I know….that’s out of the middle ages!!) has become a problem there. I am researching bug repellents, netting, and antibiotics. I will try to keep up this site while I’m there, but I don’t know how many cyber cafes I will find out of the capital city of Antananarivo!! Hopefully, my weeks there will be filled with lemurs and healthy people!!!

I just had a wonderful offer from a reader to help me with this site. It definitely needs help. I used to have a picture here. It just disappeared one day. That’s it for now. Be back again when I’m in Madagascar. I’ll be in Seattle on the 14th of March! Love, Rita
