Shot at the Caribbean

Just wanted to let you know I'm alright. I was shot in the Caribbean (grocery store) parking lot, but came away with only a very minor wound. It actually turns out to be quite positive because I'm now immunized against yellow fever....

So, the real story is that I needed a yellow fever immunization for entry into Mali this summer. (Yes, I'm travelling to Mali, Kenya and Tanzania!) So, I met up with the US Embassy nurse at the Caribbean parking lot who gave me a shot. So, it is true that I was shot in the Caribbean parking lot, but it was a needle and not a gun. I guess I could also say that I was shooting up in the Caribbean parking lot...

Holy cow you scared me! When you live in a country where that actually happens, and cops (and other men) carry guns in their pants, and shoot themselves in the feet and legs, you can't joke about it.

I'm glad you're fine. And going to Mali. whoo-hoo!

This e-mail was really a test to see if you all were still out there! Really, I couldn't resist posting the story. The plan hatched in my head as I was meeting Carolyn for the shot. I'm glad no one had a complete heart attack over it!
