After 10 weeks of radio silence I received and e-card from Kate. She and Cecil (and Nicholas) are doing fine, just having some Internet issues. Kate hopes to get the Internet issues fixed next week then she will start updating their Blog (Smiths on Safari). She said she could write a whole book on the Adventure this trip has been so far…and it has only been 10 weeks. They will be there for 2 years.
For those of you who don’t know our friends Kate & Cecil are living in Libreville in the Republic of Gabon in Africa. It is on the West Coast of Africa near the Equator. They are living in Liberville which is the capital and on the the Atlantic. Gabon is one of the wealthier African countries as it is high in mineral wealth and in the late ‘80’s they found Oil. Since they have a stable government, the U.S. has decided to build an embassy in Gabon. That is where Cecil comes in. He manages building construction projects for the State Department.
