What do you think you learned from your experience?It must have been a great opportunity to examine community life.Yes,but it was difficult at first to be accepted by the locals.It was a very remote village and some of them were reluctant to speak to mealthough they were always interested in my clothes and how much I'd had to pay for them.Well,that's understandable. Yes,but things soon improved.What struck me was that when people became more comfortable with me and less suspicious,we really connected with each other in a meaningful way.You made good friends? Yes,with two of the families in particular.Good.What about management. Did you have a project manager?Yes and he gave me lots of advice and guidance.And was he good at managing too?That wasn't his strong point!I think he was often more interested in the academic side of things than filing reports.He was a bit of a dreamer.And did you have a contract?I had to stay for a minimum of three months.My parents were surprised when I asked to stay longer - six months in the end.I was so happy there.And did anything on the administration side of things surprise you?What was the food and lodging like?Simple...but there was plenty to eat and I only paid seven dollars a day for that which was amazing really.And they gave me all the equipment I needed...even a laptop.You didn't expect that then? No.Well,I'll look forward to hearing more.
