Heading to Botswana

Hi! I'm Carla Keirns, Mike Dorn's wife.
Tomorrow I leave for Gabarone, Botswana, where I will spend the next 5 weeks working in a hospital there.
For those who don't know it, Botswana is a country of about 2 million people in Southern Africa just north of South Africa and west of Zimbabwae. Its other bordering nations are Namibia and Gambia. The country of Botswana is predominantly Kalahari desert in the west, so most of the people live along the eastern edge of the country where there is enough water to live and raise cattle. Besides beef, the main export of Botswana is diamonds.
I'll send occasional posts about my activities there, and about things the larger world should know.
