Bug Spray and Bed Nets


Believe it or not, I am just a few days away from getting on a plane to Tanzania.  I can still hardly believe it myself.  I’m at the point where I think I have everything I need and I am nearly packed.  Packing for this trip has been vastly different than packing for Romania.  I have some things I have packed less of this go around, and some things I’ve packed more of.  Plus, I’m gearing up for mosquitoes and sun.  I have three big bottle of permethrin, which is an insecticide you can spray on your clothes.

I hope it lasts me long enough.  Plus, I have regular bug spray and a mosquito net for my bed.  By the end, I will be a pro at warding off mosquitoes and biting flies.  I also hope I have plenty of sunscreen packed.  I’ll mainly need it for my face and ears, and so it should last.  I’ll be wearing lots of long skirts (for cultural reasons), and I’ll probably end up wearing long sleeves lots of days to protect from both sun and bugs.  I’m planning on the weather being a little bit of a shock, but, having lived in the South for most of my life, I’m pretty used to hot and humid.  The temperatures will range from highs in the 80s/90s to lows in the 60s.

I think I have everything I need.  If there’s something I’m missing, I won’t know until I get there.

I have a few things I need to get done tonight in order to leave for DC in the morning.  However, it shouldn’t be too much.

Once I get to Tanzania, I don’t know what my internet situation will be.  I know I will have internet at some point, but it may not be everyday, or it may not be outside of the office.  If it’s cheap enough, I may be able to buy a prepaid data plan for wifi.  It won’t be fast, but it will at least let me check email.  I’m sure the people there will help me get it all set up.
