Tourists?!

So this afternoon when I was walking back from work I noticed something very peculiar. I was minding my own business waiting for the traffic to pass so I could cross the street. Finally there was an opening and I stepped forward….almost onto a woman who had just cut me off. It didn’t hit me until I got to the other side that the woman was not Eritrea!

She certainly didn’t seem to be UN, they tend to walk around with a mentality that they are better than the people here, but this woman was simply lost in her own world. This wasn’t the most distressing part. When I finally got closer to my home (only two blocks further down the street) I saw two Mediterranean women get out of a cab. I guess that shouldn’t be too surprising, they might have even been left over from colonization.

I of course looked both ways when crossing the street to my house and when I looked back down the street at the seemingly Italian women, there was another European. Walking separately from the women and minding his own business. Uwhoa, what was going on, its not like there are that many hotels nearby.

On a completely separate note however, I am really disappointed that I havent been able to leave town because of work. On Friday afternoon I will be going to Kurba-Embeyto, and on Saturday morning I should be going to Fil-fil.
