The six-year-old son of our former security guard, Samson, died yesterday. People say he had a bad stomach, so who knows what it really was? Juliana is a neighbor, so she was with the family all day. There were some explosions in an ammunition storage area in Dar Es Salaam yesterday. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with terrorists. There were explosions there in the same spot three years ago. Sometimes people just are not careful with explosives. I remember a fireworks factory in Oklahoma blowing up several years ago. Anyway, this shouldn't put anyone off about visiting here. We are still safer than London, New York, or even Little Rock, so come on over. We'll leave the porch light on for you--by Tanesco or by generator, but that little light will be there to welcome you.
