    ... Once we got to the airport, it was about 11:00 PM. We expected to get dropped off at the departures area, but the security personnel wanted to charge us for driving the last 100 yards. We weren't paying. So, we hopped out, grabbed our bags, and walked it ourselves. I immediately found it strange that there were no crowds anywhere. I still went through the motions of going through security, getting the exit pass (called the Go Pass), going through security again, and ...

    ... are worth very little and making a few pennies a loaf. It’s a hard way to earn one’s daily bread, selling one’s daily bread.

    We arrived at the hall on the little side-street covered with black sand. The sand is not naturally black; it has become so from the pollution and garbage that are ubiquitous on these streets.

    When I woke up this morning, it was only around 5AM, but I felt rested. My days in Africa usually start early, and I like it that way.
