Gaborone, Botswana: Happy Birthday to Bena

I am posting this a day early because I may not have internet access tomorrow and I wanted to say happy birthday to my sister. Hope you have a good day. I made a cake for your birthday and fed it to my students. I’m writing as if this place is now mine but the students make me feel like I belong here.

This morning there was no internet service and I had to send several files so of course I had to go to plan B which was not even in the thinking stages. So I had to quickly come up with Plan B. I went to the kitchen while the morning service was going on and I relieved the student who was supposed to be mixing the dough for bread and I took out my frustration on the bread dough. The bread was so good that we got an additional order for some more so we made some more. In between, I spent some time defragging the 6 computers and rearranging some of the students’ files. They are just learning to save things on the hard drive and as such, they save it to any folder that comes up. When they try to find their documents again, they can’t. That took most of the morning by which time the internet was working again and I could do my work.

Today I was feeling a bit homesick so I turned on the 102FM radio station on the computer. It made me feel somewhat better. I’m going to post this because we are leaving the centre shortly. I’ll write some more later.
