Sadly one of the many downsides of living in Africa is crime. No matter where you live, they will get you! In most African countries the cops are pretty much lame.
This morning (at 4am) three men broke into a friend's place (living in a up market suburb), killed their two dogs, beat up the friend and his wife, tied their daughter of nine to a chair and took two cell phones and $100 equivalent in local currency.
I can only thank God that they were not harmed much more.
Also, I thank God we have got our 176Visa and moving over towards the middle of next year (wish it was sooner) with our two dogies.
Pray we don't have to expereince our friend's ordeal between now and the time we get the heck out of here.
