I'm going to Africa (Rwanda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Republic of Congo, Deomocratic Republic of Congo) - tomorrow!

But only for 3 weeks. I'll be back after that...

Hey, at least you won't miss any new episodes of "Heroes" while you're gone. :D What are you going for, pegger? Is it just a trip across Africa?

Be safe on yer travels Bro, hope you accomplish at least most of what you're setting out to do (and from the sounds of it, you'll safely miss me and JJs viewing of the SW Holiday Special)

I was SO happy that Heroes is on hiatus for a few weeks...although I will miss out on Jericho, Amazing race and Survivor....carp, I watch a lot of TV.

I'm going for work - I work for a church (No, I'm not a minister...) We do humanitarian aid projects in those countries - I get to go audit and check them out, make sure they aren't stealing the funds....

mabs - sorry I'll miss out of the viewing...I never saw it (or if I did, I blocked it from my mind)

Good luck Peggar, and if at all possible, take pictures......I love pictures, they say a thousand words, and I hate reading, so pictures are a nice substitute.

Ah, Catwoman, my egg-zotic friend, you've taken over Mr Reason's computer to join Louie and I. Egg-cellent!

Egg-ainst the three of us, the shell of the Gotham National Bank shall crumble, and the yolk therein shall be ours!

Mwa-ha-ha-ha-HA!!

Hey all - I'm in Kenya - safe and sound. Only stopping over though. The hotel is nice. It was dark - so no picks, and my flight to Rwanda is at 9:30 tomorrow AM.

Drove past the old US embassy (it's now a park - the one that got blown up in 1997?) Perhaps tomorrow AM - if it'sw bright enough, I'll get a pic.)

Later!

- bobafrett and OC041750 I did look for SW figs at Heathrow - they had 1 Leia in Bousch - beat up and looked the same as an american card, so I left it. I will keep my eyes open - but I got a feeling there won't be a lot of them in Africa....

Thanks UK!!! With a wife and 2 kids at home, I never take risks....

Needless to say I was web-less for almost 2 weeks. I'm back home now...I'll post pics early next week.

By the time I got to Kinshasa, all the fighting was over - but there was plenty of evidence of it (many blown-up buildings, etc...)

Good to be back tho!

I would avoid any hotels in Rwanda. Unless that actor guy runs them.

Careful. If she finds out you're Still-a-KID she might adopt you! :D
