If you are looking for the Information Technology Consortiun Homepage, you have come to the right place. Click on the ITC button above to access the IT Survey of the Gambia and other reports.

If you would like to leave a message for other former volunteers and Fishbowlers, use ouramazingly up-to-date and webingly easy to find message board .Hopefully this link works, as I put it up from a Cyber Cafe in Mumbai while travelling justso I could read your exciting words. Web designing while homeless has its challenges, and most of them are due to the evil software "upgrade" ideas at Microsoft.

So, things are calming down here after 27 years. The last of the old volunteers are going home to America to become bums and presidents of Internet start-ups, while a few new volunteers are moving in.

But for now, let's rejoice in the wonderful scenes of The Gambia.

Here are goat and chicken. They love pictures!

Here is a somewhat omenous sign. Note how the new key is indistuiguishible from the old one! At least you can't claim false advertising. I know that Umi went there four times trying to get a proper key copy.

The Lamming Incident

In the first box, we have team photos from WAIST, the West Africa International Softball Tournament held last year (2001) in Dakar. Team FISHBOWL, although working to repeat last years triumphant win over team "Car Rapides", could not bring home the trophy. As "The Big Man" was quoted some months after the event, "Our team started off great, just that the alcohol and sun combined really drained our reflexes and by the 3rd inning, most players were too intoxicated to hold a bat, let alone win a game."

Also shown are some pictures from our COS party where the theme was Caveman / Cavewoman (gotta be politically correct). The Coconut Cave of Love, a new attraction at Leybotos this year, was a smashing hit!
