Let me first start by saying that these past few days have been pretty cool. To make it even better, ladies with natural or processed hair, I went to a salon. The only reason I went was that I could get my hair washed, rolled, dried, and straightened for 70 birr. 70 birr is maybe $4.00 USD. Yes, I was not in that salon longer than 2.5 hours and that’s with the stylist doing mine and Betyi’s hair for $4.00 USD. If that’s not enough to make you move here I don’t know what will! I might go every week!
A good update on the rather slow progress of the research. I have a more focused research question/thesis!! I think the few days out and letting my mind wander really helped me to find a more solid direction. Now if I could just get some internet going it would be relatively smooth sailing. Well as smooth as any research goes. Researchers you know what I mean. I think this weekend we are going to work more on the interview questionnaire and I can find some time to sit down and write a proposal to submit to some potential conferences. I love submitting to conferences especially when they reply back with a yes I’ve been accepted. 🙂
The struggle is alive and real.
