    ... the amount because it was seen as a high risk route they were performing by traveling through the old city during riots.

    Once back at the backpackers, we headed down to the beach to spend the afternoon relaxing and recounting what a crazy day it had been. On the way we ran into a filming of a soap opera and made a cameo version. The television that people in Africa enjoy is absolutely awful (in my opinion). They actually ...

    ... out, so next time we are down. These 3 girls were so informative about things around and again never asking for anything, but advising us to be so careful and to not hire only from 1 tribe, make sure we hire from many tribes, and keep our fingers tightly on the purse and storerooms. 2 were single mums and one has to take an 8 year old child from a relative who can no longer feed her.
