Hm, I believe I just managed to post an old draft. Anyhow, I should feel inspired to write more: I am in Niamey, Niger, the last stop of a - well, not long, but it seems that way - trip in West Africa. My first time here: amazing. Not so amazing the fact that I've not had a moment to do any wandering around of my own, and if I do some this afternoon, it will be on the sly. But I saw a camel from the taxi on my way to the hotel! I want to see more! I want to go outside! I want to not be in an office or writing a report!!!!!
