5/11/09 Surprise Trip!

I just got a call from my Program Manager, inviting me to come to a workshop on monitoring and evaluation next week. I'm delighted that he thought to include me, plus the timing couldn't be better. Yesterday was the final meeting of our club for this school year, so I don't have much on my agenda for a while. I was planning a park excursion with a friend who's COS-ing soon, so we'll have to find a way to reschedule that before she leaves Morocco in a few weeks.

I'm also looking forward to the chance to talk to my PM. I haven't seen him since IST, and haven't had a real conversation with him in almost a year. It'll be great to get to fill him in on everything I've been doing. I owe him a few reports, for that matter, so he'll probably take the opportunity to rake me over the coals a bit for that...but maybe I can knock those out this week. Ah, paperwork. :)

Still, I'm excited by the opportunity this trip represents. In addition to all the valuable work aspects, I don't deny the appeal of an all-expense-paid trip to a major city. Hot showers! Western food! The chance to wear short sleeves in public! Big city, here I come! ;)

  1. I'm glad that you get to have Western amenities for a few days.
