Dianna tells me that she's very much enjoying this more rural part of India (compared to the more urban nature of Chennai.) She doesn't have much chance to be on the internet, especially not for composing emails, updating her blog, or uploading photos.
She's healthy again (hooray!!!!!!) and continuing to try to do research on leprosy. She also tells me that there are lots of bugs in her room. She's massively sprayed the bathroom with I-don't-know-what and now each am, she's greeted with piles of dead bugs. She takes a bucket of cold water, washes them down the drain, and then grabs out handfuls of the dead things to keep them from clogging the drain. (You should know that ND, being of its less-than-temporate climate, does not have a huge number of bugs. And even the mosquitos seem to have vacated the premises, given our protections against West Nile virus in recent years.) North Dakotans may be many things, but Bug Warriors, we are not! (But we do have those deranged Cedar Waxwings. . . . .)
