I'm teetering between falling into the community with holiday spirit and a fish out of water depression bubble. Bienvenu sat in my office at Cecil's desk and announced he hasn't been en forme – too much work, problems at home, the electricity bill… He's depressed. I was also feeling it, loneliness, detachment. When I asked Solange to go to Yaoundé she said Bienvenu wouldn't let her but I had the impression she didn't want to go. Tired of running around alone, I didn't go.** Foundre returned in an impressive motorcade followed by a boring pep-rally. Took Aloys and Maglore for drinks.
