in other news, i think hillary is full of malarkey. as the staff of l'annee de l'amusement struggle with the final wrestle over who to endorse for '08 it is becoming clearer and clearer that it is NOT hillary. be ready for an endorsement before the iowa caucus.
here is some helpful video for those of you who think hillary is a straight talker and a uniter.

the first day was meeting the VIPs. the US amb and US team, the zambian ministers
the permanent secretary for sport, youth, and children; praya; me; mike; minister of sport, youth and children; and susan
after a couple more meetings we were off to a candlelight vigil for people living with HIV/AIDS
(sat was world aids day, so this was the eve of world aids day)
this is ester. she told us about being married off at age 14 to a 41 year old man. how he would rape her and infected her with HIV and also other STDs. she got away from the marriage, and is now getting treatment for he disease and is back in school
we had a break to get some errands done and then we were off for a gala celebrating good HIV/AIDS journalism
we got there at 19:00 for and event that started at 18:30
it sat empty like this for another hour and a half
this is art
art with dumpsters spewing out corn
after suffering through many official meetings
we decided that on our day off
we would take a safari
below is some of what we saw
the internet is shifty and i have to be up really early
i am catching a 6:am charter flight to luapula
so forgive the lack of captions
we had to leave and i LOVE to see these guys run so i asked if i could chase them
i ran like the wind in crocs
it was beautiful and super fun!
i would squat down and look it
he would move his head up and down
and then come really close
this little guy was 300 kgs
about 800 lbs
