We left Dallas Monday late afternoon and got into Lomé Tuesday night. (I'm 5 hours ahead right of Central Time right now) The hotel here is wonderful--better than I was expecting--and I slept like a rock last night. I'm sorry, economy plane seats just don't cut it!
This morning it was breakfast with Samuel, a local pastor and liaison with EQUIP. He took us to his church's compound and recorded an interview with Mom and Dad to air on the radio this afternoon and promote the leadership conference which will be held Friday and Saturday.

View out of my hotel room's window. Traffic is usually flooding the streets.
Typical building: shops on the bottom, unfinished but inhabited top floors
