Surveying the Gap between Rich & Poor

Well, pretty busy this week – the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon,  is on his way to the Hotel where we’re organizing a little fete.  Only announced his coming here an hour ago.  Lunch and so forth.

This afternoon, I’m in the village working with very poor women on a contract farming scheme that I’m organizing for the hotel.

Leaping, from very most-know to the poorest – typical of LDCs…

.Yikes! A truck load of military has just arrived!  Bye-bye for now!
