What a Day!

It’s 8 p.m., and we just arrived from our work projects.  We will have a debriefing in just a few minutes, then dinner at 8:30 (of course, “it’s Africa, so it could be sometime between 8:30 and 10:00 :-)). We had large cooking oil jugs of heated water sitting outside our doors when we arrived.  It’s not a shower, but it was surely welcomed!

We essentially marked off the building site for the medical clinic today.  That might not sound like much, but it was actually quite an extensive process because of the older techniques.  We also got a small building mostly built.  One of the Ugandan workers we are helping said it was for them to sleep in while the building was under construction, since it’s going to take several months.  Another person told me it was for storage.  Either way, it was built very quickly and I doubt that there is anything plumb or square or level.  No one seems to worry about such things.

There’s more to say, but the debriefing is starting, so I’ll ry again before bedtime.
