1. My ethics application has been approved by the Ethics Board at Carleton University! This means my testing plans are okay to follow through with!
2. I have received all of my vaccinations and visas to travel!
3. I heard back from both Biira Sylvia, and Biira Mary Yalala from KADIWOD, both of whom have given me positive feedback on my project. I explained to them the basic idea behind the design and both think it is a great concept!
4. I watched a documentary on the life of women in Uganda, and it was very insightful. It's really reassuring and interesting to see these issues I have been reading about for so long in context. Additionally, it gives me an idea of some of the places I will be traveling to! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8orvyMJQy7E&list=WLA16DAE0B57D8F3FB)
