It’s Friday evening – yes a full week later. It’s seems less because my technolgoy skills are wanting and ,as always, first days here are like drinking from a fire hose. Welcomes come from everyone. Between hugs they laughingly correct my Swahili becuase they know it is likely to suck for as long as I return to FAME.
I am simply blown away by how much everyone has grown in their positions since my last time here. I’m uber proud of everyone! Yesterday we had a session with senior leadership to layout our goals for my 3 month stay. I am tempted to go into the weeds on this but we have 3 months of blogs to cover it and as we all know “best laid plans…..”.
And as I promised, we will return to last weeks Friday Market in Karatu, complete with ruling goats and our vaccine clinic. What can I say? Friday market is a perfect reintroduction into life in Karatu.
So I’ll head to bed with memories of the Friday Market and a fabulous week of kick off meetings at the most healing place I know. Tommorrow we head to an overnight in a Mashi boma. See you soon!
