We are still without water in our flat. Time to go to the gym again, even though I'm not 100% back up to health. Ah, the sacrifices I make for a shower.
I've been busy with work, and it doesn't seem the rhythm will let up over the next 2 months. I'm working with an NGO that supports the crafts sector in Mozambique, putting together several fundraising proposals for them. It's hard work, and they have a limited budget, but at least it's an area that I am personally interested in. I'd much rather work with them and make less money than work analyzing some cement company's HR and accounting structures (or something equally uninteresting to me) all while making the big bucks.
There is the possibility I will sell out short-term, though. I have a meeting on Thursday with a local consulting firm that does more of the latter-type projects. They are in desperate need of help, and have been trying to talk to me about signing a full-time contract for quite a while now. I refuse to sign away my independence like that, but I am willing to explore a short-term contract, say for 3 months. Especially since I want extra cash for the end of the year so that Rico and I can visit my family for the holidays.
At least I'll be busy... Ricardo is getting ready to go to Brazil again for an extended period and I am facing the hard reality of being alone in Moz. It's always easier if I can maintain myself occupied for the duration of his absence.
