In that earlier post, I said I didn't want to start a new blog on a more general theme, because it would mean admitting to myself that I was finished with Tanzania. Well, this blog has already become more general, or at least less Tanzania-themed. But I'm keeping the same name, because I'll never be finished with Tanzania. I don't know when I'll visit again, but everything about Tanzania will stay with me and will color everything I see here. Much as my two years living in the Philippines in 1982 and 1983 still colors everything I see here, and colored everything I saw in Tanzania. You never finish with those other places and people; they come away with you. So thank you, Tanzania and K2, for the big adventure.
And since I stopped posting back in January, my readership seems to have gone up! I'm not sure if that's good or bad. Anyway, it's mostly based on tourists at Kenyan and Tanzanian beaches trying to find out if an insect has actually laid eggs under their skin. The answer to that question is usually "Yes! And you'd better do something about it!" So I'm providing a public health service by keeping this blog in place.
