After tons of waiting, and worrying, and wondering, our money has finally arrived in Buta from Kinshasa.
Now we can pay back Commerçant Eyebrows, and finally pay salaries, and maybe have a carpenter make us a bigger bed! (especially if we’re going to continue to share it with a tiny chimpanzee ALSO).
The funny part, though, was that the delay in Buta was caused by a complete lack of money in Buta. The bank, literally, had no money.
And what changed? When we asked, we were told,
“Oh, the plane came today.”
“The money plane?”
The idea of a money plane still makes me chuckle. They should call Samuel L Jackson and get moving on that movie!
