Today was a bit of a disappointment. We were supposed to have our big meeting with everyone to get the project going. However, this morning, Bruno told us that he called the village chairperson who is apparently out of town until tomorrow – maybe.
We also found out that the other people we were supposed to meet with were out of town as well. On Monday, when we initially met with the chairperson, we asked if there was anything we needed to do before the meeting on Wednesday (today), but he said No. This was really out of our hands, and it is a little disappointing.
Instead, today was spent enjoying African life. We read, walked around the village, took some pictures, were asked for money and candy, and relaxed. Currently, most days seem to be spent doing this. I’m on my second book and already more than halfway done. But, I’ve been doing so much reading, I’m getting to the point of not wanting to read anymore. I fill that time with Sudoku or some other mindless task.
Anyway, we’re hoping that Thursday will be more fruitful than today.
