oct 3 2009

salaam ale kou means peace be with you and opens many a door in mali; 
what islamic brotherhood really means in terms of hospitality;
sandstorms;
how to go in a hole on a boat;
how to refrigerate chicken without a fridge; 
sleep sheets rule: mosquito net straight on a mattress under the stars rules;
sleepin on a roof at night aint so bad, the breeze is nice; peanuts grow under the ground;
Africa is tough;
electricity is a precious resource;
humility;
the power of prayer;
acceptance ;
the good side of Islam;
that no matter where you go , be nice to the cops if you get pulled over;
dung beetles are harmless yet creepy insects;
the power of straw mats; 
malarial pills are a must; 
i am mostly water;
 respect your elders;
keep it in the family;
true poverty;
coca cola is a nectar of the Gods; 
beer tastes better in the sahara;
military bribes remind me of bullies everywhere, hate them; 
what it feels like to have no control over somethings outcome; 
the patience that comes with poverty; 
the regality of humility; 
putting others before yourself is noble; 
things dont work here like they ¨should¨-- deal with it;  
objects in mirror are closer than they appear;
there is always a bigger fish; 
desire creates suffering; 
constipation is an evil demon; 
a good book is a vacation within a vacation; 
a vacation isnt always a vacation; 
that which does not kill me makes me itch and scratch;
having a travel partner that has your back is like money and finally

aint much romance in 115 degree heat

first observation
you complain alot about the weather;
most of the people there dont look like you 2;
you've learned alot already if you have learned humility;
why are you torturing those people with your guitar?
