Lone Star Beats Rwanda

Laying in bed sick with some water-borne illness yesterday, I was reminded by the noise of people cheering and honking horns, "Oh yeah, there's an African Cup of Nations qualifying match downtown today!" I switched on the radio to hear the last half, a real nail-biter. Not that Rwanda's any less deserving, but congratulations to the Liberians in this little moment of pride and unity. I think there was quite a bit of Sunday-night partying last night, and on a school night!

Speaking of which, it's the first day of school! We saw a truck carrying a stack of brand-new school desks about 6 meters high this morning. (Begging the question, 'Why weren't they delivered on Friday?', but oh well.)
