"Bon-bon" is the constant refrain from this trio--often joined by others who have escaped chores and mom's watchful eye in order to hang out at the back door of l'hopital de Doropo.  A sense of humor, too, as they began naming the many American volunteers who were rushing to and fro past their vantage point:  Madame Bon Bon (the volunteer pharmacist who always had pockets filled with candy); Madame Vit-vit (coordinator of the volunteer medical personnel on the Hanna Project team, know for her graceful scurrying from one problem to the next); and Madame Photo (moi, obviously!  The only nurse/translator with two cameras on at all times).

This small bush hospital is located in the rebel-controlled northeastern corner of Cote d'Ivoire.  The medical volunteers were with an American NGO (non-governmental organization), the Hanna Project, that specializes in humanitarian and medical aid in hard to reach and hardly reached places around the globe.
