[Mansa-l] Guinean Fulbrighter

Do we have a member, or does anybody know someone in Des Moines or  
Ames, Iowa who could meet a Guinean Fulbrighter at the Des Moines  
airport on Thursday evening?

The Fulbrighter is Jules Kamara, who is Fred Lamp's main research  
assistant in Guinea. Jules is the head of our group of research  
assistants on the Baga D'mba project, and I don't think he's ever been  
out of Guinea before, and will be arriving with no help from  
Fulbright, & we'd like to ease his arrival if we can arrange it.

I'm pasting in the information from Professor Lamp:

Jules is leaving Conakry on Wednesday the 6th and will arrive in Des  
Moines at 7 p.m. on Thursday the 7th.  He's flying directly from Paris  
to Chicago, more or less being sent off on his own without a lot of  
help, arriving at night in the middle of winter (he has to take a bus  
from Des Moines to Ames where the University is), without much of a  
clue of what to expect.  If anyone has a friend in Des Moines who  
could help, it would sure be welcome.

Thanks in advance for any help, David
