Day 6 (June 21, 2010)
I saw the computer lab in one of the schools for the first time today. It was smaller than I expected but for the most part was very good. The lab fit 10 computers. Robert, Jones, and I all had the job of testing the computers to determine what was working, what wasn’t, what we needed to buy, etc. It wasn’t very difficult, especially considering that Jones and Robert did most of the work. I actually felt pretty useless the whole time but I’m sure they picked up on my silent support.
The principal seems like a stand-up gentleman and I’m excited about working with him in the future. I’d actually like to talk to him one-on-one for a little bit to get to know him better. He was always smiling and seemed very happy about the work we (or rather, Robert and Jones) were doing. I always appreciate happy people, especially here where I seem to anger so many people with my foreign ignorance. Ah well.
P.S. I realized this morning that I had forgotten to take my malaria pills in 2 days. That was unsettling. Probably won’t forget again though.
