Saint-Louis, Senegal

I came to this Internet cafe tonight to tell you all that Saint-Louis is lovely, and to upload some photos and videos of life here.

But technical difficulties prevented me from doing that, so I decided to wait to post until tomorrow.

And just as I prepared to move onto e-mail instead, I heard a screeching of car tires and a huge CRASH. Some yelling. Everyone in the cafe ran to the door to see what was going on. “Un enfant!” someone proclaimed, and my cyber-colleagues stared. A child hit by a car. I’m back at my computer, not wanting to watch. A friend says the kid is ok, going to the hospital.

Never a dull moment.
