Stuck in the clinic as duty medic for most of the weekend, which is Friday-Saturday here. Generally, this isn't very exciting. I hope it stays that way. The Fijian contingent is having a barbecue during the time we get a break, so I will get the chance to see how that is.

Hope you had a quiet shift and some good food.

Found you through Jay G. btw.

Thanks for the kind thoughts. I'm not overly picky about food anymore; 3 months of MREs and T-rats back in 2003 cured me of that. The only problem we have here is that the mess hall is run by the British with Egyptian cooks. So you end up with a limited menu that cycles between the same items frequently, served in extra-bland British/hospital style, made be people with no previous exposure to the types of foods their cooking. Nobody goes hungry, but nobody's very interested in food around here either.
