july 2002

more preparation (and waiting with ill-concealed impatience)

My Job.....
I will be a Small Enterprise Development Volunteer.  What this means is that I could be working in grassroots development in a town of 3,000 or stationed in a large city with an NGO.  Other than that, they have given me no information.  I think I have to go through the rigors of training before they promise anything else.

What I do All Day
Wait.  Look on Mali websites.  Wait.  Pack.  Make lists.  Wait.  Shop for stuff then exchange the stuff then tell myself to get rid of half the stuff. Wait.
 
There is a lot of waiting in this process.
