Viewing Post for: Women's House Building 2017

Date: Sunday, February 26
Location: Karatu Tanzania

As you can see we have already run into an elephant. Very dangerous. He was hanging out below us at lunch. Plane flight of a total of 17 hours traveling went well. Stopped a bit in Ethiopia. Lots of movies on the plane. A bit sleepy but super excited to be here. Fascintaing mix of people on plane. For example, the man who sat next to me escaped the Congo 30 years ago. He was a refugee in Greece for 3 years before going to Canada. He has been there 25 years. Among his businesses, one is making TV shows. He is heading to the Congo to spend a month and a half to develop political activity. He had many interesting thoughts on how to be politically active. He has to be careful or the opposition could kill him. It is good to see and be with our friends Bayo and Yusuf. Bayo was telling me about he just built a new preschool. His primary school had grown to 800! He needed to move some to a new school. Jet lagged. More tomorrow.

Happy to see you right in the middle of the activity in front of the elephant. Better in front than in back. This is surreal. All is fine - Paul has called a couple of times and I'm picking them up Tuesday at 5:15 for a dinner at Max and then the RPO. All is well and what is expected. Keep up the good work. You make me laugh as well as smile, dear girl. all love, Mary
