People have been asking me for years: where are you going for your last placement? For anyone who doesn’t know, I’ll be doing my last SLP placement overseas with Hi-C in a developing country thanks to a scholarship. I have known for almost two years but I’ve known the destination 100% for about one day. It has gone from “I don’t know” to “It is likely India” back to “I don’t know” and we’ve been betting on Kenya for a while but with no confirmation.
Nairobi, Kenya it is! A hospital in the capital city and perhaps a few weeks in rural Mombasa. Things happened so quickly (well, it took forever but that is another story) and we went from confirmation to flight booking in a few hours.
Toronto – Washington – Doha, Qatar – Nairobi (over two days)….sleeping in the Qatar airport.
And back the same way we came in 3 months. At least three months. I’m open to extending the trip if the mood strikes me.
