Day one and everyone has arrived safe and sound! Volunteers got to spend a day relaxing before our first day on the worksite tomorrow! Most of the group is composed of North Americans who have had a 30+ hour flight getting here. The hours staying awake on the plane and long layovers resulted in everyone questioning “if they were even human” and some even wondered if “everyone was just a blob.”
Dinner was a hilarious mashup of sleep deprived conversations and some delicious sampling of a local dish: fried snake. Seeing as everyone was barely keeping their eyes open we opted for a nice early 7pm bed time. Everyone is getting along fabulously and I can’t wait for our first day on the project site tomorrow!
