Dr. Charles + the Burn Unit. Stephen Mjuweni, the clinical officer specializing in burn care and the two charge nurses.
All of the ladies in Malawi for the summer. (and Dr. Charles)
Alex and Jon below. Alex is a med student in my class and Jon is a general surgeon at UNC, starting a fellowship in Trauma/Critical Care.
And below, a few out-of-order pictures from a previous dinner with our group and Dr. Iverster, a Maternal-Fetal Medicine doc who also works at UNC.

So let me first apologize that some of these pictures will be sideways. Google Blogger is a crappy platform and uploads some of my pictures this way. It also let's me only upload one picture at a time, so in the interest of keeping my sanity, I'm going to publish them anyway. Just tilt your head to the side when one comes up. :)
Jen reading her letter carefully...
On our way out of Lilongwe
A group of about 20 women fetching water maybe?
Beautiful rolling hills in Northern Malawi
Hills with a carried bucket...Think I shot a little too high on this picture...
The sky feels giant here.
Stopping off and lunching at Mama Rula's campground, eating double-decker mayo, tomato and onion sandwiches.
Suz chowing down
Jen debating whether she should eat mayo...
Our road trip vehicle!
Thatched roof homes on the way in Zambia
We made it! This is part of our safari camp!
Jen's market buy: Riy-Don sunglasses. Very classy and the only souvenir which Joey requested.
Awkwardly running giraffe.
See you monkey!
The rest of these were taken on the way back from Zambia to Malawi...
That was a truly amazing trip. Great friends, beautiful scenery, and wild animals. It was incredible. We were sad Amblessed couldn't join due to visa issues (he holds a Nigerian passport and some country relations prevented him from gaining a Zambian visa quickly).
I would love to bring some friends and family back and do it again.
