I hope u have double panes windows, how do u get any sleep? How different from your village in guinea huh? U should try and set up your camera around your neck as a necklace and film your walk to work, I\'m sure its just as interesting. Love your editing skills btw, not sure I even know how to do that.

Liking Portugal
I had a bad experience in the Libson airport and decided to judge the entire country on those 24 hours. Obviously this was more or less a joke though as less than a year later I made the decision to move to Portugal. The title of the post was meant to be ironic. I have been here for almost six months now and I have nothing but praise for the the Portuguese and their country. Everyone here has been beyond nice and welcoming. It is easy to get around, even if you don't speak the language, you can find some amazing food, and compared to the rest of Western Europe, it's really cheap. I highly recommend making Portugal part of your upcoming travel plans. You won't be disappointed.

Saase doesn't change much. I looked at much the same scene over 20 years ago when I first moved to Labe. There are more multistory buildings.

Hello Samantha
Hi Samantha, You know i am of the old school and find it so hard to follow-up with all these new programs. Anyway, today i find myself reading some of your blogs. They are quite interesting. I should have tried this long ago, but as the saying goes, better late than never. I hope to continue reading all the blogs i can get to. I just finished Andrew's. Bonne Chance!! Yvonne

Guinea is not the USA
You went to their world, they did not come to your world. You were not invited, you volunteered to go there. When Norhtern Europeans were invading N. America and Iberians were invading Central and S. Americas people in Guinea, though not called that at that time, had been around with their system of living for many years. Slaving and French merchantilism follwed by Colonialization(invasion) to rape the resources for the greater glory of French nobility. When you return to the USA look at all the DVD flicks and see 99% are male oriented and never notice what is the story of male sports and very little of female sports. Go on line and notice all the porn sites where women are used for male bisual satisfaction andf sexual stimulation so that they can face relating sexually to their partners and perhaps Guinea is not so strange. I was going to vote for Hillary because she had these massive bags under her eyes that told me she was not a juice freak(alcohol) but an avid reader with eyes strained severely from her love of the written word. Relax and learn from your experiance. Accept those things you did not cause and have come to witness and in the end dowhat you can to make a difference no matter how small. By the way I am 62 years old, have one daughter, married with the same person for 42 years happily and am a male who has traveled in Africa residing in Colorado wishing I could spend more time in Africa where I find life meaningful.

Welcome to Guinea
Bonjour Sam, Upon my arrival to Conakry in 1963, I likewise experienced similar feelings. Upon being posted to Kissidougou, I really fell in love with Guinea and the Guineans. Forty years later, I had a chance to return to Kissidougou and search for Guinean families whom I had known in 1964. It was a very fruitful and rewarding experience. Please enjoy your stay in Guinea! Robert
