Wierd Alergies

Kerri has never had any alergic reaction to anything since we met nearly 15 years ago. So, we've been a little caught off guard with some new alergies that she seems to have developed here in the African bush.

Yesterday, it looked like she had been punched in the eye. She made me swear that I wouldn't post a picture of her looking that way, but she did give me permission to take a close-up of her eye to show you the effects of her recent alergic reactions.

Our speculation is that the grasses here, which grow only during the rainy season (now) are causing these alergies. We'll just have to wait for dry season, after the grasses are burned to see if she is still having these reactions. I know you probably don't want to read a post about alergies, but we just want you to get a view of the trivial things we deal with here in Zambia on a daily basis.

Oh no! That's not trivial! Are you in pain, Kerri?
