Cotonou Benin Boredom

Cotonou Benin Boredom
Cotonou Benin West Africa
Friday, September 15, 2006

I do not like to move, more likely, I do not like to pack. I like my travelers nest, and the Hotel Crillon here in Cotonou, Benin is a wonderful deal at 6500 CFA, twice the price of any other under-developed country outside of Africa, but a good deal for West Africa. It has this porch front with chair, where I can observe the people walking by, and a great pastime in life, people watching.

Boredom is good, I think an overwhelmed mind is cluttered and incapable of being happy. The free flow of thought, not forced thoughts is generally, what I seek. To focus on a subject, WORK, that I have no desire to do, is stressful. I am fortunate that I am now capable of focusing almost 90 percent of my energy in any manner I wish.

I must leave Cotonou, my desire to use the internet is slowing my travels, and I am staying in bigger cities, cultural aberrations, not of interest to anyone but a person who wishes to grow drink. A city strives to become modern, or to become a Ghetto, I like Ghettos, but difficult places, and people are not generally happy in Ghettos, but they do choose to live in squalor so what can I say, I guess they deserve it.

The left the small village to live in the city, where life is more exciting, and now they live in the Ghetto of life.
