End of the Mali Journal

My older daughter has been evacuated from Mail in the middle of her term as a Peace Corps Volunteer because of the coup which topled the democratic government there. While it is possible the junta will quietly hand power back to a civilian government,  it is also possible they won't, and the Peace Corps doesn't take chances, so 186 people got their time cut short. M has decided to return to the United States and should be back next week. She is reachable now by email and phone in Ghana.
