I woke up today and it was overcast. I was glad because we were expecting sunny hot days, and it turned out to be nice as far as weather goes. This was the perfect set up (the gloomy overcast) to the to feeling I experienced going about our errands. We took a taxi and along the way to the different agencies we saw the people here in the city walking, riding their bikes and many on motorcycles and mopeds. What stands out in my mind is that everyone has a sad gloomy look, just like the weather. The military is present everywhere and that also made me feel uneasy. Other than that everything went well . We got all our permits to move about in the country, but I keep thinking how difficult life may be here and in many parts of Africa, and can you imagine now the refugees running for safety, after their ordeal in Darfur? WOW I am very fortunate and will smile a lot more just like a sunny day!
Amor y paz, Connie.
