- Sep 13, 2002Hi Tighe:
My daughter, Bethany, is currently a Biology teacher
in Kasinje. I have read all the responses to your
request and, based on conversations I've had with
Bethany, I think you've received some great
suggestions. The only thing I would add is that she
took two collapsable water storage containers (most
camping supply stores carry) that she has found very
useful for storing boiled water in. The advice about
a tent and sleeping bag is very good; she uses those
in her travels constantly. As far as clothes are
concerned, depends on whether you end up in the
northern area or more southern. She took more clothes
for the northern area where it does get cold but ended
up in a very hot climate. She had no problem trading
some of her colder weather clothes with another PC
teacher; she also finds that buying clothes in the
markets works fine.
Have a great experience and say hello to Bethany
should you meet up with her.
