<B>Above is The Freetown International Airport at Lungi from where I worked. Our tents in the overflow parking lot were our home for 24 days. It rained more often at night. Usually just after the sun began its decent around 7 pm at that time. With any luck it would coincide with your open air shower to give it a boost. I wonder what this country would have been like before all the violence and non civil war. However we were very proud to help out the UN logistics and the nations deploying there to help restore peace. Enjoy your diamonds that you have or might acquire. Someone may have been beaten or died fighting over the control of the trade of them from this country.
The language spoken around the airport seemed to be mainly Kreole. It was close to English but with a twist. For example, water bottle is called a "catch".
As normal the weather reporter may not work.</B>

    I think that hotel is part of a chain of which I stayed in one Laos. Was the water unfit to drink, the locals were drunken troublemakers, and there was dog poo all over? Yes? has to be a chain.

    This is so true! Everything that we take for granted is a really big deal for some of the kids especially, and making sure there is an equal handout can be difficult! But the kids are so cute!
