We also got the opportunity today to visit with a local attorney named Magdalena Rwebangira. We went down this insane pothole filled road and arrived at a compound where a couple of men came out and manually opened a gate to let us in. Once inside, there was a lovely landscaped garden and 2 story office/home. She was a small woman who came out to greet us and who shared with a smile that she had 3 daughters and now has grandchildren as well. She then said she had done some work on gender equality in Tanzania. (humble is an understatement. I googled her when we got home) She spoke with each of us at length about our individual research projects. What a friendly and accomplished woman.

Finally, we headed home for the day. About halfway back to the house, there were sirens behind us (not unusual). Traffic was bumper to bumper with buses, "tuc-tucs", cars, motorcycles and everything in between. Out of nowhere, a guy ran into us on his motorcycle. He was trying to get out of the way of the police escorting a black mercedes with flags on it down the middle of the traffic jam. The motorcycle guy managed to get up and hop back on his bike and took off. Our driver got out, checked the vehicle and we went on our way. The back of the vehicle and the wheel was damaged/scratched up. We spent the 20 minute ride back to the hotel telling him how that would have all gone down in the states (police report, 2 hours on the side of the road, lawsuits, etc) He was fascinated.
Thats all I have for today. Tomorrow we start our will drafting workshop. Here are a couple more random pictures of people I photographed today.
