    Everywhere we went in Zomba District, we attracted large crowds of curious kids. Most of them had never seen an American before. But really, I think they were attracted by our fun-loving female graduate student, Tryness Banda, who joked with and teased them. Here was an educated young Malawian woman working closely with an American expert. I could see the wonder in the eyes of the little girls. I was glad that the team provided something so tangible for their aspirations.
