Well, before I actually leave for Peru, I have to get the proper immunizations. Last week when I checked this out, it was no problem. Get my typhoid and Hep A => good to go. Today when I called the Tarrant County Travel Clinic, though, I was informed that no appointments are being scheduled for at least another week due to swine flu. wth. With just over 4 weeks left, this does make me pretty nervous. So everybody, keep your fingers crossed that these people come to their senses and let me get immunized so I don't arrive in Lima only to be kicked right back to the United States. I didn't make a blog so I could write about a month of living in Fort Worth, dang it.

Jason and I are spending the majority of June 2009 in Lima, Peru. He'll be doing research at the Instituto de Medicina Tropical Alexander von Humboldt of the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia (http://www.fogartyscholars.org/fellows/sites/peru-texas). While he's busy with that, I'll be hanging around Lima and doing my best to see parts of South America. I already have at least one trip planned... we'll see where else I stumble across during our time there. I'm going to do my best to keep this blog updated on our adventures; we'll see how it goes.
