I will be working in Niamey at least for the next 8 months (until
February 2001). I will be based in an agricultural research center.
Before leaving by car I am flying to Niger next week and coming
back at the end of the month. After that my friend in Spain will

If you arrive to Niamey in July we'll probably be there. My telephone
number there will be Tel +227 72 25 29 / 72 27 25. This email will

probably be more informed at the end of this month. Nice to meet
you and have an enjoyable trip.
