Field Visit Bingo
I was in the field again this week. You know, on the one hand, field visits beat the heck out of being in the office. Driving north across Afghanistan’s Shomali Plain is a real treat and, traffic notwithstanding, I really enjoyed the journey. Outside of Kabul we had clean air, and better still, a closer look at the mountains, once we got to the Panjsher.
It’s nice, too, meeting with community members and seeing the work our organization does in more detail. However, it has to be said, after a while, field visits can get a little, well, samey.
So for those of you caught in that awkward space between loving being out of the office, and dreading the next time your 4x4 stops because you know it means having to give another painful, unplanned and patronizing speech to a bunch of villagers who are probably just as over it as you are, here’s a little game to take your mind off things. I call it “Field Visit Bingo.” How many can you tick off?
