I’m flying off to South Africa tonight and will report from there. Please keep those cards and letters coming and forgive us if the schedule changes a bit as a result of the time difference. We appreciate the time everyone spends with us every day and hope to bring you interesting insight into South Africa and the continent beyond.
Have an insightful weekend.
