Glad you've touched base again. Just what is the worst thing about Angola?

Avoid Angola like the plague. If you get a chance dont come.

I met a couple from Angola a few weeks ago in a restaurant in Hanoi ... as soon as they said we are from Angola I thought - "that is a bad place" ... and it's not the rap regarding the blood diamonds and  ... I just have an overall impression that it is bad.  but thanks for the tip ... I think I will avoid it.  

I was poking around looking for another gig and there was an opening in Mauritan, LM thought it was Mauritius simialr spelling but ...

Mauritan - islamic republic with hideous human rights - regular coups - abject poverty - etc etc...
Mauritius - island paradise - 24/7 universal wireless internet (the entire country !!!) etc ...  

She was ready to move until ...

Mauritan is what you call people from Mauritius the tropical paradise place off of Madagascar. I think you were trying to say Mauritania (but forgot the 'ia') which is the desert hell hole in the Sahara. What a difference a couple of words make if you were trying to do a plane flight or something.

Hello All.. finally off vessel awaiting on flights out. Talk about a lack of organization. I wouldnt even use teh word organization in the sentence, lol.

I have not had a beer in over two months. That will be remedied very soon I promise you.

Thanks for all the well wishes.. hope to see you all soon. I will talk more later, when I gets more time.

As for Mauritania.. you are right. I been there too. That place is a dustball, you get sand in places you dont know. And talk about bugs.. certain times of year theres huge insect infestations.

Yikes - 2 months.  An IV may be in order to get it into your system a bit quicker.

Yes when I read the CIA blurb on it - it immediately hit me that this was one of teh top ten places on the planet i didn't want to go, but thanks for the affirmation.
