Alimou and I have been in Rwanda for almost seven weeks now, and everything is going quite well. We are working hard to complete the proposed tasks, and at the same time we are having a great time. Last week we worked with IT club students on building the computer lab.
It’s been a real pleasure working with them, and we are looking forward to our next meeting
When I’m not working on our task, I join in my family activities, such as helping out in the farm. There I had to do something that I imagined I’d never do in my life. I had to move natural fertilizers with my hands. It really wasn’t easy in the beginning, but once I got used to it, it wasn’t so bad. I wish I never have to do them again though.
I changed my hair style to a more local style. When I go down to the local market, people literally stop their work to stare. Then some laugh, some give me thumbs-up, and some come over to greet me enthusiastically.
