Architecture run amok

IMG_0960 IMG_0962 IMG_0963I removed the tables in the workshop and put people in a semi-circle with the tables at their back. In the evaluation at the end of the next day they said they didn’t like it. People are timid and like to sit behind a table, according to my Malagasy colleagues. But I don’t think it was only the set up. I also blame the terrible chairs, as uncomfortable as can be, and the horrendous acoustics of this weird French building dating back to 1967. I kept wondering what the architect was thinking and how the building committee could have approved the design.

As predicted, AF canceled my flight and left me wondering Wednesday night how I was going to get home in time for Kara and Matt’s wedding where Axel is officiating, reverend Axel, imagine that! But at 4 AM I woke up to find my new itinerary, via Kenya and Amsterdam.

And now I am sitting in the VIP lounge, drinking petits-cafes and preparing myself for the long trip home.
