Just a quick note... Africa is freakin' cool. After nearly 24 hours of travel we arrived in Bujumbura Sunday night with the cats in hand. They're settling in a little bit easier than we are, since we both started working right away and they get to stay home in the air-conditioned bedroom all day. We haven't had a lot of time to relax and absorb what's going on here. (But we have an extra-long weekend coming up and look forward to that.) Despite being busy and tired we're having a great time and meeting lots of new people. We've had so many "Well, that's Africa," moments already I don't think I could ever explain them all.
I'll have time for more later!
