What in the world are we ever going to do to stop it? I mean play me a video of a starving baby, but the true story is those who steal from her mouth! There is more US aid given to this world than ever before. I am so very pleased to see the world finally addressing the source of so much pain in International Aid - CORRUPTION!!!!
My girlfriend & I were talking about all the lost gloves in Old Town. Here's an example. They are everywhere!

When the girls get into 5 or 6 grade they join a "Young Ladies Club" where they are taught manners and etiquette. The young woman looking at the camera is - of course - Head Prefect for her school. It is amazing how some young women show who they will be at such an early age. This young woman will go far!
I had one of the best meals I have ever had in my LIFE here. Tucked behind Christ Church Cathedral on King Street, it is not a tourist place. The snapper I had was on par with any restaurant in Washington, DC. As a foodie, I continue to seek the perfect meal. This came close! And, save for the two drunken guys who tried to bring beer into the restaurant, ALL diners were Bahamian. Yes, wine would have made the meal perfect, but the restaurant's food was nothing short of perfection!!!!

When I fly to Tanzania I fly over Somalia on Emerites. At 35,000 feet, they have no weapons to hit a plane. As for the corruption, can anyone truly say they are surprised? What a sad, sad place Somalia has become.
