"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
Monday, May 16, 2005 The Masai Market in Nairobi. A small market compared to some of the markets I'd been to in Accra ... and definitely one that was accustomed to Western tourists. The prices were pretty high (by African standards) and we were surrounded immediately by people volunteering to be our personal shoppers and show us great deals. Like Nogales on steroids. I was able to get in the right frame of mind for the experience, having been through the Arts Centre in Accra ... some of our more introverted people were momentarily traumatized by the experience. I got a great hand-carved chess set for the boys. But the highlight was as I was leaving I traded the $10 watch I got at Target for a really cool shirt. Can't do that in America!

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."
