Asked to Assessment Day

I've been asked for an assessment day by VSO. Not sure when I will be able to go. I'll have to try and get one in the Easter Holidays.

VSO Open Day

Went to VSO Education Open Day in Putney, London. Met some interesting people. One guy gave a talk about volunteering in Ethiopia. He lived in a small concrete-block house, but it did have electricity and even a phone-line. He'd taken his laptop for music/DVDs etc.

One worrying thing... he had a guard (with a spear!) who lived in a room attached to his house.

Another woman had been to Maldives... the place looks beautiful. I'd like to be on a remote island. Her Maldivian counterpart was with her today. He's come to England for a visit.

It's the total lunar eclipse tonight.
