    I apologize for the lateness of the posting of this information, but connectivity issues in Mufindi and in Tanzania in general have postponed the opportunity to add the post to the site. So, the second week of my home stay and the first full week of our volunteer house stay, I performed research with the help of my fabulous research assistant Joel Chumi. We traveled (walked and walked and walked) between …

    A capability to adapt is essential when traveling in a developing nation. I experienced this first hand. To add to the experience, this happened to me during the rural stay of our trip in Tanzania. Luckily, I had completed the homestay period with the Baba Omary family. Our group of students (11) were all staying at the volunteer house called Mianzi (Bamboo Trees), at the NGO. On April 9th, I …

    It is almost a decade since I last travelled to the Far East and when the opportunity came last month to visit Hong Kong, I could barely wait to relive the magic of the buzzing metropolis. The last time I toured Hong Kong it was on a two week long cruise holiday and the 20 hour stopover always felt too inadequate a time to sample all the city had to …

    Monday 30 March 2015             I have been tying together loose ends by making amends and calling contacts to reserve dates for the students’ visit to California. I have also been working on Earth Day and Jazz appreciation PowerPoints. Tuesday 31 March 2015             I finally had the opportunity to meet with two wonderful entrepreneurs from the BioConserv program I’ve been preparing for them for months: Visit to San Francisco July 6-11th 2015 Embassy Information: Embaixada …

    Friday 20 March 2015             Today, I have spent hours organizing and shredding boxes full of important papers that cannot be thrown into regular recycling bins. The ship visit will be next Tuesday, and I have been organizing excel spreadsheets that consist of the information of who is going to be able to receive a tour of the USS FARRAGUT, a guided missile destroyer. For planning purposes, the construct of 20 …

    Friday 13 March 2015             Knowing that it was my final day to volunteer at Futuralia was saddening. I enjoyed the personal contact I got to have with the curious students that I did not otherwise get to have during my typical days in my embassy office. American Corners talked about scientific experiments and compounds and gave demonstrations on chemical experiments meanwhile I continued giving students information. There was an Obama …

    Friday 6 March 2015 Aside from working on more MATs on the theater plays: “Moby Dick” and “O Som e a Fúria”, today I visited Católica University to ensure the space is being prepared to our standards and preferences in preparation for the Connect to Success Workshops tomorrow.  We have a total of 245 confirmations, and expect some not to show while others to show.  Estimated attendance is about 200.  We …

    Today I have been in Buenos Aires for two weeks and I wanted to start my journal before I let too much time pass without writing :) The first week:  The first week here was CRAZY. And that's a complete understatement. I landed in the morning, got into the city in the early afternoon and crashed hard for a few hours before I had my first meeting. Yes, I had my first …
