Personal highlights

  1. Shianda: one of the most rural places I have visited in my first week!
  2. Chama: my first visit to a local savings group, people hold together
  3. People: everybody learns and speaks good english, even pre school kids!
  4. Rural life: everybody has a small business with sporadic work or peasant
  5. Hotel: even the smallest township has a hotel (didn't look inside though)
