On The Move (Again)



I'm headed for Cape Town tomorrow. While there I've got some interviews set up at the South African AIDS Vaccine Initiative as well as the Cape Town site for the Phambili vaccine trial. I'm also going to see my old Nieman pal Melanie Gosling plus (I think) some other friends....so it should be fun.

I've been fretting about "narrative arcs" and "stories behind stories" with this trip...do I have one? Is it all going to pan out? The bottom line, of course, is that I am learning a great deal. But is it going to translate into copy? Sheeeeez.

Anyway, more soon from "The Mother City".
