Into Africa

Tuesday I fly to Cape Town.

It's a last minute business trip. I will be representing Oxfam at a meeting of the Global Reporting Initiative and International Council on Mining & Metals. Our goal is to develop disclosure standards for mining companies. It's an important, if technical and obscure, part of my work.

My job at Oxfam takes me to new places. Last November, I took my first trip below the Equator to Peru. Cape Town will be my first exposure to Africa.

I will only have a day or so to see the sights. I'm thinking of climbing Table Mountain if the weather is good or visiting Robben Island if the weather is bad.
