I'm off today (12/31) and will be back on April 1st.
The basic goals of this trip are:
(1) Finish the school (electrical and plumbing stuff mainly) and make sure it starts up as planned; ensure transportation and negotiate with the secretary of education to make sure we get a good teacher.
(2) Evaluate the abandoned field station and possibly begin renovating it.
(3) Explore further the possibility of a health clinic.
Thanks everybody for your support. I'll try to keep the blog updated here once a week or so, but with poor weather (rainy season) and therefore poor roads, sometimes getting to the city may be problematic.
Happy New Year!
