Day 2 with the wonderful staff at AISA in Abuja seemed to pass by in a flash. The conversations and the commitment to doing what is right for kids were so powerful that the time seemed to melt away.
My last day in Nigeria was also replete with the “real Nigeria”. I awoke to no running water (cleansed courtesy of a bucket of chilly water brought to my room), experienced numerous power failures (people carry on without noticing it’s dark), went to a bush bar (no formal building but a great atmosphere and suya is awesome!), and watched the fulani herd cattle right across the man street (cows have the right of way).
I am so much the richer for the experience of spending a week in Africa and I am reminded that educators face the same challenges regardless of locale, and kids are always kids no matter where you are.
Thanks you Nigeria and Kenya for opening my eyes and opening your hearts.
