I’m posting this from the office of the District Director of Health Services in Jinja, primarily for two reasons:
1) I can.
2) That’s just how long it takes to wait for one signature from the District Director of Health Services in Jinja.
It’s the final step in a long process to get our operational research plan approved. At least as far as the District is concerned. A long week of feeling like little could be accomplished, ending with the same amount of rain that has impeded that very work all week long, ending on a fantastic and successful note.
But for now, we play the waiting game. The bureaucracy game. Who cares, today is a victory, and when a week ends with a victory, the week was a victory as well. And when the month ends with a week that ends with a victory, the month was a victory too.
Here’s to victory. Now I’m gonna disappear into the forest.
