just kidding!

Urgent call from Peace Corps desk.
January tenth:
General strike in Guinea.

Three to four weeks of delay.
Waiting once again.
A disappointed E.

    argh! that is annoying beyond belief (and you were packed & ready to go too!)

    if, in the next 3-4 weeks, you’re back in Boston, let me know. being able to catch up in person would be a– albeit thin– silver lining to the departure delay.

    So what do you think Erin? Is it really going to happen? I am about 50/50 right now.

  3. Hey Erin–came across your blog while scanning for Guinea news–Joel and I are delayed too…keeping crossed fingers that Feb 3rd will happen!
