I only know it from watching BBC America

Dennis,
I can't believe you're leaving so soon again! (how do I do the jealous smiley?)

Leely & Patty~
Yep, I'm almost ready, 1 more trip to Wal-Mart to pick up the malarone and I'm set! Time sure flew before this trip (though it was 1/2 the time spent thinking about my first trip!) Not so nervous this time as I know what to expect and I have been practicing drinking gin and tonics! I think I just about have it down! (hic) 2 weeks from now I should be almost to Heathrow and lunch with Kavey!

Julian, I wish I had that kind of bookstore near me. I have the Internet though.

Divewop, to take over the camp, or the world, you can’t have work ethics! You have to lounge around drinking with the right people and taking the credit for others’ work.

Leely, I’ll try to put those adjectives in my CV/resumé. The job is clearly better than what I’m doing at the moment and the location can’t be compared to any place where I’ve ever worked, but what I want is to live in Kenya.

Dennis, Two weeks. amp; (I use this smiley for jealousy just because it’s green, but I think it’s a smiley that describes someone who has swallowed shower water in Zambia)

Nyamera-
You're right. What was I thinking? So while I'm in Rwanda, first I'll take over the Virunga Volcanoes and then lounge around amongst the gorillas posing for the tourists. Wonder if anyone will notice. :-"
Don't know how I'll fare eating wild celery, bamboo, and stinging nettles for a diet but guess I'll never know until I try.

Maybe you prefer to start as top dog.

Divewop, It sounds like a very healthy diet – especially the nettles!

Luangwablondes, It looks like there is some competition. If H. H. Bucher is a real person, that is. I’ll write something like that when applying for the Robin Pope job.

I have a hard time imagining someone like that relating to the Zambian staff-besides all the inherent problems of operating in Africa.

Cheers,

Julian,
I did, but with a ridiculously truthful CV. I’ve also applied for a job in Kenya where I should have a better chance because of a language that’s required. I haven’t heard anything from that company though. Please post again if you see something interesting in the ATTA newsletter.

Well, H.H. probably applied too.

Good luck, Nyamera. How do you say "good luck" in Swahili?

Bahati njema, Nyamera. If you start the new job by the end of May I'll stop in for a drink!
