Last week before traveling to Accra and first week every team member involved!
As you might expect, we have had quite an extensive action list this week. Why is there always so little time left to prepare the final things?? GPS devices, malaria pills, passport copies, official letters, battery packs, software license files, sunscreen, etc.
We conducted a test run of our field work survey outside the TU Delft library, measuring possibly the cleanest type of drain we will find in Accra. We gathered our measuring materials by scoping the alleys of the Action and even by finding tools on the street. Prepared invitation letters to our workshop to distribute around stakeholders in town next week. Watched YouTube videos to get the Ghanaian English accent right and already got used to the tropical temperatures in our headquarters (a small library room). Also tried Fufu!
As we are wrapping up these final preparations and packing our bags tomorrow, we feel confident and ('generally') prepared for our adventure. Looking forward to update you about our first impressions.
