Today is a busy day. I’ve packed up all my belongings, and given away what I can’t carry. After my ‘visit’ with the APR’s Oliver Tambossa, I got in contact with my South African bureau chief, Darren. He wants me back pronto. They’re assembling a small media unit to travel with me and I have to brief everybody. I also need to restock my cash and supplies. And right now, I especially need to hug my family tight. I should be gone for 2 weeks, but keep checking the blog. I’ll continue my updates from Johannesburg.
