Almost time to leave

Status update...
Medications - checked
Suite cases - packed
CSC material - sorted
Out-of-office notification - activated
Hand luggage - still a mess

Tomorrow I will spend the whole day with my two sons. They have vacation this week and it will be our last day together before boarding the plane on Friday morning. The plan is to spend the day in a historic amusement park, but it depends on the weather.

And this morning I received this lovely card to wish me a great time in Africa:

Our project for WEF

Today we'll be discussing details about our Sub Team 4 project for Women Enterprise Fund (WEF). 

Lots of prep work with reading material on WEF, Kenya Vision 2030, background on financing in Africa, what-to-bring list and so on. While at the same time still having to do my regular day job... something of a challenge. Maybe also because my head is full of African skies and not matching the cold spring weather here in the Netherlands. Forecast for Nairobi  around 25° Celsius during the day and 15° at night. The rain season is not yet over, so a small umbrella is also on the packing list. Still, it sounds better than the local weather.

And for those interested, see the link in the right column of my blog for more details on WEF.

Only 3 weeks to go!

My blog on the adventure of spending a month in Nairobi, Kenya. 

Reason? The IBM Corporate Services Corps program I applied for about a  year ago. And now it's become reality. In about three weeks I will be on a plane, very early in the morning.
