The Lollipop

On my way to a full recovery of stolen documents, I had to go to hospital this morning to get my vaccines shots and the yellow WHO booklet reissued before I fly out back to Tanzania. Not a very pleasant experience, I must admit... Since I had no time to spread these vaccination shots in time, they were all administered to me at once. Six in total. Yellow fever vaccination, hepatitis A and B, typhoid, polio, diphtheria, tetanus and so on... I got my yellow WHO booklet back and I'm happy, yet my arms hurt a lot now and I feel as if I have been recovered from the underneath of the speeding train...

At least, I have my lollipop to comfort myself a bit which the nurses awarded me for being a good boy as I didn't even wink while being shot with those vaccines...


  1. Dear Wojciech
    Just want to wish you a safe flight back to Kiabakari and hope that the after effects of all those injections don't kill you!!!Your poor system must have gone into shock when it received so many foreign bodies but hopefully you will feel the benefit of them when you are back in Africa. We will be with you in spirit as you take off - saying goodbyes is hard but there will be a great welcome awaiting you when you return to your mission . God take care of you and of course His Divine Mercy will be surrounding you all the way. Lena and clan.

  2. Landed safely in Dar last night. Recovering from a thermal shock today and tomorrow, from a snow heap to the furnace is not a joke...:) need a few days in Dar to try to recover as many stolen documents as possible, while being here in Dar... I do hope I won't encounter too many obstacles... God bless us all, Lena dear and the Clan! xoxoxo
