Orientation to my Blog

Posts will appear in reverse chronological order with the most recent being on top.  The date on each post is when I was last in the country being reported on.  As time permits, I plan to insert reports from previous trips into the chronology.  On the left side of the blog, under archives, is a clickable list of all my posts to date. More background on the blog is included in the pages immediately following the introductory comments and picture.
