Managed to get the sorting of tee shirts finished on Monday and eventually got them sent to be laundered, so 350 children will get relatively new tee shirts this weekend.
Back to day care???
There is to be a celebratory opening of six more houses in the children's village on March 13th and I was tasked with phoning the embassies of those nationals who had donated the cost of a house to find out if the Ambassador was free to attend, then send follow up email and explanatory letter to the Embassy/Consulate. The phone calls were quite illuminating. China - rude and aggressive; Singapore helpful, but didn't really get it, but did respond to email almost immediately; Switzerland very friendly ( but they have done lots of work with the foundation) ; Norway and GB extremely helpful and friendly ( had a good old chat with Valerie at the British embassy ). Spending today editing publicity photos for the local newspaper.So that brings me up to date. It's been a long week - working from 8.30 til 5.30 ( not used to that at all ), but have managed to fit in some swimming, which has been good. An unheated but nevertheless warm, outdoor pool in February is great. Just to finish off will upload a couple of shots of the campus. Next week ??? No idea, but will be my last full week here ..... it's gone very quickly.
