We then took an eight hour bus ride to meet with activists and government officials tomorrow concerning the destruction of the environment due to mining.
I felt bored and restless during some of the ride, but reminded myself that this is only a minor inconvenience. The trip did have its high points including a spectacular stop along the water.
In chatting with one of the fishermen, I mentioned we were here to learn about the root causes of immigration. He smiled and said, "Imagination." Good answer!
I am looking forward to tomorrow. The area has been heavily armed and many people unjustly arrested. We will have a lot to discuss and learn.
