Greetings from Johannesburg!

This is a test post to see if e-mail uploading works. We survived the 16-hour ATL to Joburg flight, and now will be leaving in a few hours for Kigali via Nairobi. We’re pretty jetlagged. It’s about 7 am Joburg time, but we’ve been up since 2 watching American 80s movies and CNN International in our hotel. It’s pretty nice to lie down after 16 uncomfortable hours. I have already been confounded by exchange rates as I can’t remember which country is which. i think SA is 8 rand to $, Rwandan francs about 575:$1, and Malagasy ariary 1500:$1

Apologies for the disjointed exhausted post. Tomorrow is our first workshop day in Kigali, and I should have substantial things to say – unless I collapse beore I can type things up!
