i haven't typed much because of this fact. i got the flu on the day we were supposed to celebrate one year in azerbaijan! woo hoo!!! at least it was the first time i got sick (maybe the last?) but man o man i wouldn't wish the stomach flu on anyone. some other volunteers have had this problem repeatedly. it is not fun.
a funny problem is that the word "sick" in azerbaijan is the "f" word in english. so when i'm explaining in english that "i'm sick"....well, i guess i'm just "f'd" :)
