"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

This is scary. It is so disconcerting to see nothing but tanks on the Boulevard 30 Juin, Kinshasa's main drag. Normally, the street is one big traffic jam of taxis and private cars inching the four miles between the leafy residential neighborhood of Gombe and the embassies, government buildings, grocery stores, and banks of downtown. I hope my friends are safe. I hope they don't have to evacuate.
