Two things from yesterday:
Our first ET (Early Termination): Andrea, who’s leaving us for an NGO job in Romania. Best of luck to her.
Our first locust swarms: Around 5pm yesterday, the first waves of locusts passed over Thiès. It was an apocalyptic sight just begging for mixed metaphors: flotillas, clouds, sky-darkening mobs of doom washing, flowing, storming the skies. It was surreal—millions upon millions of insects, filling the air for dozens of feet above the treetops, all moving west to east across the city in golden sunset light.
