Breakfast in Dakar
I took a break from working to pose for this picture. The writing says: Le Culte du Travail (The cult of work). We found this in the University.

In other news, the convergence center house has been rented. It’s a great house
- huge, 2 floors, 5 bedrooms and, somehow, 5 bathrooms. Joseph and I just walked the 15 minutses to the University (another 15 minutes to the library where the media center is). Wow. I’ve never attended a social forum within walking distance to where I was staying! We will be fitting about 30 of us into the house (and the two apartments down the streets). We will move into the house on February 2.
