Say Hello to My Little Friends Eaten Alive (by Mosquitos)

This is our Phil crew that has come over for a visit to get to know us. They are the trauma for the camp. They are really nice. I made a cake and we had ice cream and cookies. Sounds really corny but they went crazy for it. they really like ice cream. So the next day they and most of our crew went down town and did about a hundred circumcisions. The right of passage in their culture. I did not go because of some GI issues so I held down the fort.


It's been two weeks since I last looked at American soil. It's been fun here, but I thought I would get away from the giant mosquitos of Alaska, I was wrong just look what they are doing to me here. This is just the half of it. I have bites on my arms, and can you believe my fingers? If you can't tell that is my chicken leg. I really need to start spraying myself more often. I do spray but sometimes we just can't predict when we will be outside.
