My everyday life in the project

My everyday life in the project is very diverse and includes many major tasks and duties – plus a thousand little things. Besides planning and coordinating construction activities, I take care of coordination and contacts with the authorities as well as logistics in the project.

My spare time at the project:

In my free time I read a lot, took walks in the neighborhood, and communicated extensively with home.

I particularly apreciated:

The country is very impressive in its own way. The climate and the different landscape have a special charm and quickly imprint themselves on you. It was very exciting to Meet many new people and to live and work in a culture that was foreign to us.

I especcially missed:

My family.

My plans for the future:

Continue to work for good causes.

My best memories of my time on the project:

The first impressions left a particularly strong impression on me. You never forget the atmosphere and smells when you arrive at a new project.
