part of the relocation package i was offered included the first month's accommodations. i assumed [wrongly] that it would be a soft place to land. good housing so i could jump into the monumental task of building a strategic plan that could be executed against for the next year while i looked for more permanent housing. that is not what i got.
hey, it's Africa right? it's humiliating for me to even describe the housing i've been put into so i'm not going to share photos at this time but it's such a distraction and takes time away from the real work as i spend hours every week hunting down leads on decent housing.
so i'll go into the security thing next. then some positive stuff, i promise.
