    ... see and I feel a sense of relief and serenity.

    I get through customs easily and am met by Isa outside the airport. Everything went smoothly from there. I am so glad Isa is here and is showing me the works! It helps that she knows the Kinyarwandan language fluently and knows how to get things done around here!

    Today I became a wedding crasher. Actually a dowry crasher of Deena and Eric. Both Deena and Eric are Congolese but each have found a home in the US while they studied and ultimately found each other. We were included because Deena's American sister Julie, is also a friend of Opportunity. Julie is a radiant woman and welcomed us stragglers into the most joyous, funny, lovely and endearing moment. As we were part of the bride's party we entered and ...

This seems like a touchy subject for a joke; especially in a country that suffered a genocide, but pygmy jokes are or were apparently something like what Polack jokes were in my youth (with apologies to any Polish readers).
