Thank you Rick. I check BBC's website too. CNN doesn't really much about Africa. I can get Chad specifically on the BBC website.
She is doing fine. I called her back later this morning.
She says that things simmered down. Translated: They see less military personnel with AK-47's. She has been stopped at a check point, and the military made them get out of the Peace Corps vehicle, but didn't do anything else. She is in good spirits.
She has 50 students in her class. Right now, they are all children. She says they come to her class and sit on the dirt ground. Some bring a brick to sit on. Amazing how much we take for granted.
