Media Deficit Abroad

by Dual Income No Kids on March 2, 2009 · 0 comments

Having recently surfaced from a several weeks of 14 hour work days I’m now in Burundi for a week of meetings. A welcome change in scenery but no respite from the continuing work from DRCongo as I serve as Acting Country Director.

After a recent deficit of media I was a bit overwhelmed this morning at the graveness of the news. I’d been following along James’ posts but when you realize that a stock like AIG that was worth $150 a year ago is now worth less than 50 cents – it kind of hits you.

To be honest it is hard not to just want to walk away from it all. It’s easy to be out of the loop working here in Africa, but the realities back home won’t be going away any time soon. I have a strong feeling that we better be prepared for it to get worse before it gets better.
