Nightime in Gabon
Did I mention that it’s hot here. The heat index was 105 today. I had a meeting in town with the WWF and I thought I would melt in the taxi (no, they don’t use AC). Plus, my driver was moving slowly because I guess he thought that would save gas. I noticed he was on empty and I’d be surprised if he made it to the gas station after he dropped me off, poor bastard. It’s probably much hotter when you have to push your car.
I’m not complaining mind you, I like the warm weather. It’s just that our satellite TV shut off 2 of the 3 English movie channels that we have. Everything else is in French or Arabic. FOX was the best and now it plays pop music videos 24/7. With no TV, I am sitting outside on the patio at 11:15PM writing this short blog because I am bored, it’s pitch black, it's 92 degrees and I am sweating...
