      ... be gruff and a bit pushy, but it’s because he is preoccupied with getting things done. On any number of occasions, I’ve been compared to Mother Theresa, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr., and the Dalai Lama, among other actual saints. It’s a very kind compliment, don’t get me wrong, but it’s a lot of pressure to put on someone! It demands even greater of the ...

      ... really on my own. It was pretty freaking amazing, actually. I didn’t feel any fear, just a bit of concern that I wasn’t going to make it to my distribution. But like, African time, so whatever. It’s a pretty incredible feeling, being so far off the grid and finding yourself in a place where few outsiders, even few people at all, have ever laid eyes on.

I can understand not walking alone, but to say that I need a male escort in the middle of the day in a nice part of town? Too much.

      ... hot water. The Taiwanese wanted to go down to Kibuye by boat on Lake Kivu. I didn't mind a little variation in means of transportation so we got up really early to head down to the lake.
