Just a quick note to say that things have settled down today.  We will let the missionaries out again tomorrow.  Hope this doesn't happen too often though.
We were out this morning for a couple of errands and saw a little bit of damage but all in all things looked pretty normal.  Some shops were still closed though and there were a lot less vehicles in town.  People are a bit leery, I am sure.     We bought a paper and it said that 14 were killed and several others in the hospital with gunshot wounds -- most of this was north of here though in Mzuzu and Lilongwe.   There was one killed yesterday here that we know of.    Good to have it over with.   Apparently they have given the President until August 17th to come up with a solution to the country's problems.   If he doesn't satisfy them - I suppose there could be more demonstrations.
It has been a beautiful day and seems to be warming up a little from what it was a week or two ago.
