I Am Already Saving the World
I know that we thought it would take a while for us to get our bearings and make some changes here and generally improve the lives of the people we’re serving. But, lo, I have already surpassed expectations! I am fixing our school.
The school we go to is actually relatively nice compared to the schools of some of my fellow trainees, but there are still a few things about Azeri construction that don’t quite fit, such as the ability to create doors that latch and shut. This was especially a problem when all the students wanted to come in or watch the foreigners. All of the students. So I brought out my handy leatherman, carved out some space in the door for the latch, and wha-la: We have a door that shuts and locks!
Serious changes going on here in Azerbaijan…serious changes.
