Just a few days left before the last month of my assignment begins. And there are so many things I would love to do and see which I havent done and seen yet.
Previous month of my life here was full of such events: visiting Dar es Salaam, travelling to Zanzibar, improving my computer skills to share them with colleagues.
First I had a wonderful trip to the capital of Tanzania Dar es Salaam , where I had the chance to meet and have a good time with my pulse-colleague Emma and make sure again sure that GSK is a big happy family and I convinced again that GSK people are supportive encouraging and always ready to help in any difficult situation. Emma and I visited the museum of Tanzanian village – one of the two museums, where all the tourists go to Dar es Salaam. The museum consists of houses, collected from different parts of Tanzania. Some houses are large and spacious with many room and others are more like haystacks or sheds. Inside the houses you can find objects of a simple tribal life. Inspection of the museum-village ended with a national dance of some staff of the museum and we were invited to participate … we did it with big interest. Dance was simple and so we did well.
Travelling to Zanzibar was waiting for me after Dar es Salaam, visiting Stone Town and Prison Island, Jozani Forest. Swimming in the Indian Ocean with dolphins, watching ebbs and flows, getting acquainted with giant tortoises, some of which are over 100 years old, enjoying picturesque sunsets and sunrises and full african Hakuna Matata. All these were a great source of inspiration for affairs which were waiting for me on my arrival in Mwanza.
Frankly speaking after all experienced emotions getting back to work was quite not easy… Even before my departure to Dar I made a decision that I have enough time here in Tanzania to supplement my knowledge in certain areas. In this case I use such instruments as online education. I have been taking part in vebinars for a long time and they have been devoted for different topics…before previously they were mostly personal performance and personality but this time I was more focused on upgrading my professional skills in using different computer programs, which can be good support at my working duties. Initially, the aim was to study Access program which I chose to organize one of the date basis I dealt with. Then I decided to continua digging deeper and saw some gaps in knowledge of Excel moreover I have a great opportunity to apply my knowledge in practice and share them with others.
And here is an interesting fact to and up up my article today… I do not think I ‘ll unearth a big secret if I write that Caucasian girls are in demand and African men are absolutely sincere and open about all their desires that very often causes a certain feeling of embarrassment. And in Africa brides are bought, throught negotiating and coordinating a ransom with parents…it could be a million shillings or more, or less … So for all this time I also received a lot of different proposals but this month I received probably the most unexpected for me…as a future wife I was offered 60 cows 🙂 Life is getting more exciting…in this case the only thing I should be worried about is how to transfer these cows to my parents 🙂
