I’ve made it successfully to Dakar, Senegal, where I’m staying with a good friend. I’ll continue on to Freetown, Sierra Leone midday tomorrow (Sunday).
Dakar is hot and humid now, and from what I’ve seen in the darkness flying from the airport, it looks like a lovely place.
And just as fate would have it, in all my eagerness to get packed, I notice that Kalousek is out as the head of KDU-ÄŒSL. What could have led him to literally cut a deal with the devil, i.e. the Communists?
Maybe the fact that he was slated to be in charge of literally all EU funding? At least that was the deal he was working on with ODS, but my memory could be failing me in the heat here.
