Where I stayed
From there I decided to go on a walk toward the city's mosque and Muslim quarter. By taking Avenue de la Paix from the city center I got a fantastic view of the surrounding valleys and hills
Now before I had left on this walk, I had met Beth and Won-Gyu Hwang. Both were staying at my guesthouse. Beth is a masters student at Oxford, but from Iowa, and Won-Gyu is an economics professor from Korea. Beth is working at Women Waging Peace (a project partner of SERUKA) until September. The professor is here to help the government with economic development. They were very interesting for the brief time that we met.
Once I came back to the guesthouse I received a message from Désiré at the front desk. He had left his number for me and I called him. He was supposed to meet me at 4:30. So I took an hour nap and finished Kite Runner. He never showed up so I watched the English vs. Portugal match in my room, ate dinner at the guesthouse and returned to my room to watch Brazil lose to France.
