turning from brown to green before my eyes.
- Me standing by the company
- Standing in front of the company
looking back toward the main gate
- When I arrived at Kagnew, the barracks looked like the first
slide. The second was taken the week I left 22 months later. This was the same
week that people were moving into it.
- Ops barracks. My bay was at the

with the windows open on this end and top.

calling this traffic circle something like this.
- In Toward Asmara, the author reports a fascination with the
bougainvillea covering the buildings. Now we know he was at
