L’Afrique m’a dit bonjour

In Goma, I was picked up by my boss, met other Concern staff and went for lunch for which we waited 2 hours!!!! Anyway, that didn’t matter so much, the day was nice anyway. Only in the evening then, I started having slight belly ache… which got worse and worse over night and in the morning I went to the office just to go back home 30 minutes later… stomach cramps, vomiting, diarrhea… absolutely fantastic, I was in such pain. I haven’t felt so bad in a long time. Maria, I can imagine now how you must have felt, when you were ill! I’ve gotten better over they and I hope Ill be able to start work tomorrow. Unfortunately, I missed a first trip today to an IDP (internally displaced people) camp where we might start a project. 



  1. L’Afrique t’a dit bonjour? I think it was all due to the fact that you had to wait for 2 hours – you’re just not used to starve :-D

  2. Hahahaha, very funny. I didn’t get the problems from lunch but from sth I ate in Kinshasa. Also, Im far from starving… you know I have a cook in my house who’s taking very good care of me!!

  3. hi hi….na ist ja ein toller start…aber ich weiss wie das ist so ne lebensmittelvergiftung…möcht ich auch nicht noch einmal haben…

  4. I really am proud of you for doing this . ry not to get fod poisoning.
