Having been following the events of late January & early February of the strikes & the ruthless killing by the military under the orders of President Conte, I felt helpless sitting here in Europe. I was in touch with Steve, the guy I met in the brothel in Bissau who was travelling a few days behind Gianni and I; we were in touch by SMS. Steve was in Conakry, surrounded by sporadic fighting, reckless bullets being fired and trying to help the Guineans who were looking after him.
The amount of wonderful Guineans I met who's fate I'm unaware of; currently I'm now trying to organise some sort of funding to get a vehicle & medical supplies to a village in Guinea. I would hope to go over towards the end of 2007.
Tentatively I'm going to start a blog; please read on about this project ... http://Guinea-2007.blogspot.com
