Yeah, I know. I've been a bad blogger lately. It's not that there hasn't been anything going on - there has - but nothing that fits into a clever little anecdote. Our desk officer was here for a visit and stayed with me, so we went to meetings and watched movies and played Wii for a week. It was nice to have a guest. Things seem to be humming along fine at work, lots of interesting meetings on mining and labor unions and the like. The weather has been more reliably sunny as of late so I've been spending more time at the pool. I made chili and cornbread for dinner last night and it was very tasty. You know, life.

I'm starting to really get excited about my winter R&R - Houston for Christmas and Vegas for New Year's. Before I came out here people told me the key to surviving Conakry was to get out of town often. I scoffed at this a little, because I couldn't imagine that it could be so terrible. Now I believe it, not because Conakry is so terrible, but because it's getting a little humdrum. A change of scenery may be in order. Perhaps a weekend trip to Freetown or Banjul. That would give me something to blog about.

  1. Conakry's a quick flight from Dakar! But oh, there's a lovely resort in Banjul with insanely reasonable prices during the off season.
