Benson

I have a friend who is a waiter at the cafe next to the internet place where I am right now.

His name is Benson and he is Rasta. From Johannesburg. Anyway, he's very chill (S.A. for laid-back) and I like him. Today he told me that politics put his father in the ground. He was of the wrong party I guess and they burned down his shopping center and killed him.

I am currently reading "What is the What" by Dave Eggers. Such a good book, but very sad, about the lost boys of the Sudan. Please pick it up. Kasey and Alason, I dont know who's pick it is for book club, but I insist on butting in with this one.





Anyway, I am so over politics and governments and I'm so glad to be away from the campaigns right now!!! It's pretty refreshing not to be bombarded with it, although S.A. has it's own problems. I just feel nice not currently having a country. A lone wolf, ha!

And here is the lone wolf now:
