First Lady's World Tour: Week 3
On a roll, the first lady is now thinking about a place that is much misunderstood by her countrymen and women, one whose many nations have been out from under the colonial yoke only since the FL's birth. One of those nations -- a former Portuguese colony along the southwest coast, whose countryside was peppered with land mines during its years of civil war -- once played host to Lady Di, that other globe-trotting do-gooder. Of course, the first lady is keenly aware of the political minefields she has recently weathered closer to . . . home? -- and is thus in a position to assure the locals, "I'm listening." As she listens, however, she positions herself along the coast of a large inland body of water. When she looks north along the shore she hears the lyrics of what may well be her new theme song: "Oh, give me a home . . ." In the distance, that noise must be a tremendous waterfall. Certainly those who have lived here their entire lives would know all about it.
So what's the name of the place she's visiting now?
