goodbye from africa

By Lauren Biggers

i have 10 minutes of time remaining in the hotel business center in lagos, which is basically nothing. it takes 30 minutes just to get signed into my email account...

so for now, let me just say on behalf of the entire team, thanks to all for reading. i expect we won't be able to write any more from nigeria, unless by divine intervention. we are off now to do a little souvenir shopping for momentos to remember the trip by, and then back to the hotel after dinner. we leave in the morning and will spend the entire day traveling (he's just not that into you is the inflight entertainment! suhhhweet!)

i intend to have everyone post a blog about the overall experience, so please keep reading in the next week. also pictures. also, more big news to come about a project to build a school in the community we visited yesterday (!!!!).

personal highlights for me include watching andrew lead the basketball clinic in benin and watching frank dance and sing with the children. they have both been tremendous. i have loads and loads of stories to tell, but i just got the 'five minutes remaining!!' so for now, though, so long from all of us, and good speed.
