Today was a good day. I spent most of the day filming the city. I must get over my fear of getting in the middle of a crowd. This is a third world country, and video cameras are usually not out and about. One man said to me, “So you filming da poor people, are you gonna cum an’ help us too?” One woman said, “Don’ you film me.” Others just stared, and as usual, the kids loved it. Some drunks walked up to me and asked me for it. Of course I said “No.” I tried to be as discreet as possible but sometimes I needed the shot.
I did get some good footage and ideas are formulating in my head about the video. Tomorrow the Cornerstone team comes in, and we will go out to the base and to Gales Point. I’m really excited about this because going to the base and to Gales Point really feels like going home.
