in a taxi in rural Ethiopia of Elizabeth, of a nurse from New Mexico who was seven months into her tour in the northwest with Medecins Sans Frontieres, as she told me a story about her arrival in her small village, and how they'd been struggling with an outbreak of leishmaniasis, a fatal disease spread by the sand flea, and there were so many deaths that bodies were being piled-up in the center of town.
