where to go part 2

The strikes in Guinea were ended at the beginning of last week. The union leaders apparently felt the government had met sufficiently many of their demands. But the news stories since then tell that Conté has not named a new prime minister to start taking some responsibility for the nation, as he had agreed to do. Peace Corps Volunteers’ blogs tell of hanging out in Bamako, waiting to hear if they’re going to get to go back. I still doubt it. I briefly hoped when the strikes were over, but I’m back to my skepticism.
