Last Posting from Monrovia

Well, it’s hard to believe that a week ago tonight I had not yet set foot in Africa, and already my bag is packed, ready for my trip back to Canada, my heart crowded with people I had not even laid eyes on a week ago.

So intense has been my involvement with Liberian writers and their writing since my last posting – and with planning how best to use our limited time together – that there’s been no chance to update things here. (Okay, I did go to the beach a couple of times and for a walk up to the American Embassy once; the streets feel quite safe here and the locals assure us that this feeling is correct).

Ingrid Ermanovics, Program Director for Reading Liberia, has kindly been sharing her computer with me this week, but internet access is often painfully slow, so that’s been a factor in my limited blog presence, too. I’ll try to catch you up when I get home, but in the meantime, you might like to check out Ingrid’s blog at the CODE website.
