I was in the field again this week. You know, on the one hand, field visits beat the heck out of being in the office. Driving south across Kenya’s savannah is a real treat and, traffic notwithstanding, I really enjoyed the journey. South of Nairobi we saw wildlife, and better still, Mt. Kilimanjaro, capped with snow, rising above the plains- my first view of that beautiful mountain.
It’s nice, too, meeting with community members and seeing the work your organization does in more detail. However, it has to be said, after a while field visits can get a little, well, samey.
So for those of you caught in that awkward space between loving being out of the office, and dreading the next time your four-by-four stops because you know it means having to give another painful, unplanned and patronizing speech to a bunch of villagers who are probably just as over it as you are, here’s a little game to take your mind off things.
I call it “Field Visit Bingo”. How many can you tick off?
