A typical Monday

Since we work mostly with youth volunteers all days are different, we have to adapt to their schedule. This an example for what a day can look like as a youth delegate.

06:00
Rise and shine (the neighbours rooster woke you up at 5, but this is when you get out of bed - for the past hour you’ve been watching Buffy the Vampire slayer on your laptop) 

06:30
After a nutritious breakfast consisting of toast and eggs it’s time for your bucket bath. If there’s water in the tap you’ll of course enjoy a shower.

07:00
You watch some more Buffy the Vampire Slayer

08:00
You arrive at the office (but african time considered you bring you’re laptop to work on your blog while waiting)

09:00
Together with your local contact person you make a plan for the upcoming week and do a recap of last weeks achievements

11:00
You go to the local hotel to use the complementary wifi you got with the Coke you bought. You send some emails, read some newspapers, and if you’re really lucky/patient you can upload the blogpost you wrote this morning. 

13:00
Lunch! You go home to cook another nutritious meal consisting of more egg and toast.

13:30
Time off, read a book, exercise, watch some more Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 

16:00
Meet up with the youth volunteers for swim class at the local hotel. 

18:00 
The food highlight of the day: DINNER!
You’re of course making chicken tacos from scratch, tortillas and everything.

19:30
…. another episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer while you add metadata to the photos from todays swim class. 

21:00
Brush your teeth, spray on some bug spray and crawl under your mosquito net to call it a night. It might seem like you’re getting a lot of sleep, but the neighbours rooster will make sure to wake you every hour on the hour from 01:00.
