Presidental Largesse

Got two texts from Janet. She is heading back from Lake Ebbe, "Otherworldly."

They had lunch in Dikhil, where the President was campaigning for the next election. He was handing out khat, the local tree-grown narcotic leaves. Gotta send this idea to Bernie and Don!

Still dicey with guide but all ok, she says.

They passed the truck drivers, still protesting.

Today they're going to "the forest of dead trees," night in Afar village, then back to Djibouti City.

Should have some pictures by then!
