thanks for the ride and i'll see you around
This is the scariest millipede I've ever seen. It appeared on the floor in my entry hall last night while I was cooking dinner. Scary!!!
I am headed to Kigali on Monday to meet some American missionaries who are, see if you can keep up with this, the parents of a woman who attends a church pastored by some friends of my parents/my father's former co-worker whose daughter used to baby-sit us. They are super-nice and have offered me a place to stay in Kigali. I will only be there for a couple of days, but need a break from Congo for a little bit. It's exhausting having to negotiate over every single transaction in every day. That and I am out of things to read in English. National Geographic Adventurer's February edition was interesting the first ten times, but I am really looking forward to picking up something new at the great Ikirezi Bookshop in Kigali, and to tracking down some kitchen stuff at reasonable prices.
So that's to say, I may not be blogging for a couple of days, but don't worry, I'm fine. Thanks so much for your prayers and sweet notes and text messages! I love hearing from y'all and knowing that I am so lucky to have such great friends and family!
