From St. Louis With Love 

Hey All,
I'm not going to take much time to write tonight, but I am taking advantage of the generous gift of time on University Gaston Berger, Saint-Louis' network to upload a bunch of photos. (Thanks to Professor Barry and the folks in campus networking for helping me out there!)

Check out the photos on my flickr account. There's a mix of stuff there from my camera and Jim's and taken by numerous photographers in the group. I hope you enjoy them. I'll try to give context to the pics at a later date. Maybe I'll organize them stateside.

These three days we're here at the university enjoying a series of morning lectures about the political history, culture, arts and religion of Senegal. In the afternoons we're free to wander into the French colonial/slave trade town of St. Louis on the Senegal River. Despite its sordid past, the town is beautiful and reminiscent of port cities such as New Orleans or Savannah. The slower pace of the university and the town is a pleasant change from the hubbub of Dakar.

Will write more soon.

PS It seems my johnnyc.net email address was down for a few days. I apologize to anyone who tried to email there. It is working again.
