  • I thought you were off on one of your "Bees Abroad" things?

    I was asked to do that last year but I decided not to. It would have meant being away from home for some time and, to be quite honest (I know it's a selfish reason), I couldn't bear the thought of not going to my sons grave every day.

    Due to Covid, most of our Bees Abroad stuff is now done remotely. a few years ago quite a few of us Project Managers agreed that the next logical step for us was to get in country trainers up to a skills level where they could run projects, then step back and mentor/advise remotely. I was one of the ones trialling this. Covid has just sped the things up a bit.

    We have one excellent trainer, Innocent Mkasu working a few projects for us in Tanzania, and also Juma Mpolenkile who is swiftly catching up with Inno's help. It's a far more economical prospect. My Air fares alone for the Kigoma project will pay for the whole three year scheme.

    Just putting the finishing touches to Juma's next visit next week

    Also trying to get funding approval for another Inno led project down near the Mozambique border.
    I really don't mind working like this. although my MS is mostly non symptomatic, I do flag a bit in the heat, although if we do manage to get a big project planned for Coastal Ghana at Cape Three points and they've insisted If I do it, I'll get a few trips!!
