….. in Nepal. I can hardly believe it. You would think 5 months is a long time but time has really flown. Today I was documenting all that I have worked on at SIRC and I was really surprised at how much work I got through, with help from Nikita, Binay and Rozina the MBA interns, as well as from Karen Hilton on the HR side of things. I’ll see if I can attach the presentation to this posting. Success! See here Status update – summary Today was also spent packing …. packing! I shipped a box back to Canada with stuff I will no longer need, and will ship another box to Grace in Cork for stuff I will not need in Bangladesh but will need this Fall in Europe. My bags are much lighter as a result. Today I also picked up a few more shalwar kameez from the tailor, made of very light cotton material for the heat and humidity ahead of me in Dhaka. The shalwar kameez covers the right parts of the body in this predominantly Muslim country and also protects my Irish freckled skin from the hot hot sun – so all is good.
I have the finishing touches to a Rotary grant application to do tomorrow and Monday, being my last day at SIRC, I’ll wrap up with Esha and then conduct a short session with the heads of dept, before a little celebration at 3pm with the staff and patients. So it is all go. Dinner is served and I am hungry – later!
