"I'm what the world considers to be a phenomenally successful man. And I've failed much more than I've succeeded. And each time I fail, I get my people together, and I say, "Where are we going?" And it starts to get better." - Calvin Trager
Saturday, June 12, 2004 This is the view from the fourth floor office of CENCOSAD in Opera Square in Accra. If you click on these photos, they get bigger, so you'll be able to see it better. Basically, the square is a big dirt carpark which turns into a lake/mudbog during the rainy season (which is now). The streets are lined (as most of them are) with marketers selling their wares. If you are white, they assume you have money (and, of course, they are right), so you really get hassled to buy stuff. Being here is a unique experience both of being a racial minority and a person of extreme privilege. Oh, and David, no "Curry in a Hurry" near here ... but EVERYTHING is curry in a hurry! | Mike at 6/12/2004 10:48:00 AM

"Christ's example is being
demeaned by the church if they ignore the new leprosy,
which is AIDS. The church is the sleeping giant here.
If it wakes up to what's really going on in the rest
of the world, it has a real role to play. If it doesn't,
it will be irrelevant."
