I’m in Sweet Salone in one piece! I wrote you fine people a nice long blog entry at the Brussels Airport but I don’t have my netbook with me so I can’t post it — this is just an impromptu stop at an Internet cafe.
If I had to use one word to describe Salone: HOT. Hot and humid beyond all belief. Cold showers are a blessing — even when the power is out the water stays on, thanks allah. I think right-before-bed cold showers will become a nightly occurance.
I’ll write a long missive tonight… but I just wanted to let you all know that I made it 🙂
