When traveling overseas there appear to be a great deal of opportunities. The thing is, these opportunities are always there, we just fail to recognize them. I know, I live in Washington DC and too rarely enjoy all of the sites of the city.

While it is always good to be open to new opportunities, take the time outside your comfort zone to seek out new opportunities and experiences whenever you can.

Top on my list is friends of friends. Last night I met up with a Kenyan from the World Bank who I was introduced through my Croatian friend who used to live in Liberia; talk about connections!

I was able to see the real Monrovia by going out to a couple of places to see the night life. While it is possible to seek these out on your own, it is always best to find a good host to show you the lay of the land.

Now I’m headed out to the beach this afternoon to take advantage of the beautiful weather we have here. Tomorrow I’ll be headed out to the bush until Thursday so you may not hear from me. I do have a modem on my computer that supposedly works some out in the bush, but we’ll see how that goes.

Enjoying Africa,

    :o, the beach. The heat just kicked on in my house and the beach sounds very nice right about now.
