So here I am posting my second blog post almost a full two weeks after my first one! I feel ashamed. Keeping up a regular blog is way harder than I thought it would be, especially since things have just kept happening and I have kept getting further and further behind. Heads up, this post will most likely be very,very long. I'll try to keep more regular updates coming now that we are all set up at work. But for now, here is a recap of my first 11 days in Botswana!
The first couple of days we were here in Francistown we were just trying to get lots of errands done. Luckily, our friend Kenosi who just graduated from Queens set us up with his friend Gee (who isn't working right now because of the strike), who borrowed his uncles pick-up and drove us around town. Riding in the back of the truck was definitely much easier than it would have been walking around trying to get our bearings. After picking up cellphones and finding internet (my first Facebook update from Botswana!), we met our boss! Right away I felt comfortable. Kabo made it clear that we would have lots to do, which is great because it would have sucked if we had just been stuck with grunt work or had a boss who was more focused on us just having a good time while we're here. Obviously I want to have a good time, but I the reason that I came here was to work, so I'm glad we're all on the same page!
