Hello everyone! After 26 hours of flying, 14 hours of layover, and 4 countries, I have arrived at Solwezi in Zambia.
Upon arrival to site, I was dropped off with all my belongings at the office and sat for a half hour, struggling to stay awake as I awaited my boss. He introduced himself, and immediately began describing the project he’d like me to work on. His first words were, “We’re throwing you into the deep-end….”
The facilities here are very basic. I live in a container with a bed and a desk, and share a bathroom with an Australian geologist. I have electricity.
I have been given a desk at the office with a computer and internet, so I must write personal emails on company time. Considering how busy I’ll likely be, an abundance of emails isn’t likely. I’ll try to send updates every week.
I’ve taken a few photos and will attempt to post some on my flickr site. Check out my flickr set.
