Hiding in Niger

Hiding in Niger
5:01 PM September 15, 2005

I have lost all desire to explore or to think about Niger, like my friend John said,
- Think Beaches -

I cannot move around outside my room without learning to hate Niger. Niamey is not my favorite city, hard to say where is better, I suppose Zinder or Maradi, however for sure Niamey is over the edge, it is a beggar city and they believe they have the right to take my money for any reason they can think of, they are totally lacking in pride.

I am going to try to publish the 500 plus photos I have of Niger and leave for nicer places, the NGOs as best I can tell have destroyed this country for tourism, now they have no choice.
