The presentation was well received although our translator had to use a megaphone there were so many people so that they could hear what was going on. I have a feeling that we will be revisiting the clinic in the coming days to draft wills for some of them. Last week in Mwanza, after we visited Kivulini and did our presentation, we got calls the next 3 days from the workers there saying they had ladies who wanted us to come help them with their wills.

After we left the maternity clinic, we headed to the headquarters of the Pan African Lawyers Union, where Kelsey will be working for a couple of weeks after the official program ends. There we met with Don Deya, who is the CEO. He was very friendly and I am looking forward to doing some work with him over the next couple of weeks. PALU basically works with all the individual lawyer unions in all the countries in Africa.

We spent the remainder of the evening looking for new hotels. In addition to the taxi debacle, the latest development in mine and Kelsey's room is that everything is damp (this is not a good thing anywhere but in Africa, its particularly bad from what I have been told as it can lead to all sorts of fun things in your clothes). We were able to find a couple of suitable alternatives and hopefully, after we finish up the week we prepaid here at the lodge, we will be in a new place here in Arusha.
The city is beautiful. We had our first clear view of Mt Meru today without clouds and it is truly stunning. We also managed to find an amazing little cafe at a Masai Art Gallery which served pizza. We all needed a little comfort food and it was the perfect end to a long day. I am feeling much better today, and looking forward to the work ahead here. Tomorrow, we will be participating in a historic day at the African Court of Human and Peoples Rights. More on that tomorrow.
