In the town of Eshowe, South Africa, 1 in 4 people between the ages of 15 and 59 is HIV positive.
“Farm Girl”. This is my new nickname from the team in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. It does, unfortunately, have several negative connotations. ‘Farm Girl’ is a brand of baked beans: so not that bad, I guess. Its other local meaning is, politely, ‘a woman with many boyfriends’. Let’s go for the former: I definitely don’t fit into the latter at the moment! This is my new nickname because of all the time I now spend on (or looking for) sugar-cane farms.
