Ive been here a week… A good week! And today its time to go and get my hair cut…Ill probably 
do that at the "Happy fellows hair cutting" place, it seems like a better idea then, and Im not kidding
“Kunta Kintes hair cutting” now the ones of you that have seen or read the book/film Roots already
got the point here… Kunta Kinte was a slave brought to the states and the part most people
remembers is  when he gets his foot cut of, so I just don't know….that name just has a bad ring to it!
We all see things  differently  so heres one of those things… Back home we think (or the store thinks
we think…right?) that we made a barging buying something that is now, let’s say  499 right …
well here the barging would be buying at something like 505 because that shows that the seller cut
as muuuch as possible at the price that was so high and he just can get it lower but he got it down to
aaaalmost 500   … so you see, selling something at 499 wouldn’t work here no matter what, 499
would always be considered a starting price… You think it work back home… Sale!!! Now 1009.99 ?
Sitting here watching my neighbor …now for Usd 250 they are digging a well, the picture is up here
Somewhere, these guys are hand digging a 20 meter deep well to see if they can find water, one of
Them is digging at the bottom, filling buckets  and the other ones pulling it up, at one time he said,
quite happy, he didn’t need to fill it… a car passed and the soil fell in the bucket aaaaal by itself!
Now put your hands at your waste and put your elbows out, that’s how narrow the hole is
and look up at a hmmm Id say a 4 store building, that’s how deep it is…
oh by the way… the hole from last week…
got to 23 meter… no water, rock bottom… Well well well lets dig another….(ha!).. hole !  
There are two picture up today, first one, two men digging a hole, second one I must say Im “kinda”
Sticking my head out (not) making a political statement, you can always argue about the meaning of
being “great” or what makes a man(or women) “great” Id say most of us would say
that great is a good thing…
now take a look at the calendar for this year, photo was taken at the printers office,
Id pic out  Mr  Gandhi  anytime but there are one or two in this calendar
 of worlds “great” leaders, I juuust dontKnow if Id put in this category….                                      Wonder what President Obama would say ……
