    I don't remember anything about the first half of the day because I slept through it. I vaguely remember asking Mr. M when we arrived at the hotel at 4AM what time he wanted to get going this morning. He replied with one word: "noon". Sure enough, I was up and showered and ready for action at noon after going to bed at about 5:40 AM. It wasn't exactly a night's sleep, but it was some good sleep. I woke up really appreciating the hotel that ...

    ... then left it to turn onto sandy streets full of blowing garbage, and through puddles of foul black water, remnants of rains and the effluvia of shantytowns.

    We arrived at the home of a couple who have newly begun attending. I forgot to write their names down, so I can’t share them (I’ll get them again tomorrow), but they had a nice clean house with a mini-department store just in front. They have a food section, a clothing section, and ...

    ... of the trip my daughters are especially in need of seeing me on Facetime or Skype. That's why I'm looking forward to moving on from this location. Even as I write this blog I had hoped to connect to the Internet, but I found that the connection was no good. Another good breakfast this morning, but this time a little lighter. We took no omelets.
