A Semester in Rwanda


Fulbright Orientation

So, from the blogging guidelines from Fulbright, the suggested disclaimer

This site is not an official Fulbright Program site. The views expressed on this site are entirely those of its author (Nanette Veilleux) and do not represent the views of the Fulbright Program, the U.S. Department of State or any of its partner organizations.


The views may not reflect those of Simmons College either. Possibly not even of Nanette Veilleux, say, in a year. Time will tell. 

Found out that I'm immune to Measles, Mumps and Rubella. Thought I was. Vividly remember two of the three diseases, tucked into my mother's bed with Peggy and Joey (also sick at the same time, of course) wearing blue plastic sunglasses to protect our eyes. Frankly, I don't remember actually feeling unwell.

Also found out that it takes a few phone calls to get a four month supply of malaria medicine since the standard insurance limit is 90 pills. Not insurmountable but apparently worth discussing with care givers, pharamacies as well as insurance providers.
