["The Head of Mission for Hope International Laurent De Loup, really blew up at me. He had to call Paris to report me missing............."]
Sunday October 3rd
Well I finally got to the Hope International office, I got a mini bus with
Isah but it still took about two hours to get through the city to the other side
of town. I left Isah in his room without telling him with a thankyou note,
the chocolate, cheese and the wine, it was least I could
do after he helped me out and I guess he will like it a lot more than the my team
in Freetown and the field and anyway the cheese was really starting to smell.
of Mission for Hope International Laurent De Loup, really blew up at me. He had to
call Paris to report me missing and has been checking with all the airlines
where I had got to. I said I was sorry and told him I had some trouble at the
airport and that I missed the Helicopter etc and got to town late and so didn't
want to travel through the city at night. He told me that within the first 24 hrs I had already
broke more security rules than he thought was possible. I didn't tell him about the
Hope Boxes being impounded by customs and having to report at immigration
tomorrow. I thought it would be better if he calmed down a bit first.
he calmed down, and then took me to the living quarters and said to relax
and he would start to brief me tomorrow at 11:00 am and that he was glad that I
had arrived safely. So now I am going to find a bed, I didn't sleep to well at
Isah's place last night and its been a really mad 72 hours.
