Staph Infection

A little mosquito bite leads to a little scratching and a little dirt leads to an infection.

It looks worse than it is. After some prodding from James and other PCVs, I called the PCMO (PC Medical Officer). A trip to the pharmacy and a mille ($2) later, I have amoxycilline and a renewed interest in hygiene. This is my 2nd or 3rd infection since arriving in here a year ago, and I'm surprised how it's more of a nuisance than a scary medical event. Thanks for the staph infection, Burkina!

Today the new stage (training group) arrives for education and DABA (development of agricultural and business activities) programs. Welcome to Burkina!
