Moving to other things, my cottage overlooks the beach and darn it doesn't help the cold but it does give me a great view of the beach. I love the latter but hate the former. Who loves to shiver, no one. I am so well wrapped up, turn on the electric heater in the training room and all. Drink hot tea every now and then, I am constantly on winter coat but I am still cold! The South Africans among us are even surprise that the weather is this cold. No thanks to Global warming/climate change. And did I mention that it's being raining since yesterday? That makes the weather extremely cold.
Below is a picture of me all covered when we broke up for a group discussion. Couldn't recognise meself when I saw the picture. On me was 3 tops, winter coat, jeans trouser, socks and canvass, a scarf and a blanket! You can't blame me.
Where am I? I do have a lot to say especially about the Feminist Technology Exchange taking place at the Cape Town but time is short. I then reckon that if you click on the FTX link, you will probably get all the neccessary information on how feminists are exchanging and sharing their technical know-how with one another. We have 5 different tracks as follows, Audio, Video, Social Network, Wireless and Mobile and Digital Storytelling. Visit the website/blog to see how the partiicpants have blogged about their new skills. The most amazing thing is the peple that I have met. We are about 100 people for the FTX and after FTX we will start AWID Forum and the number will increase to 2000 people from all over the world.
At FTX, we have to gender sensitive male feminist amongst us. Robert from Uganda (He's a lecturer) and Adrian from the UK. They are wonderful!
So, we have diverse group; the Phillipines, Egpytians, Indians, Algerian, Zimbabwans, Canadians, Uk, Kenya (Up Obama), Congo, Brazilians, Nigerians to mention just the countries that came to my head. We managed to have a little fun dispite our busy schedules. Up in the pictures is Manaal Hassan from Egypt teaching us how to Belly Dance. Yours trully tried but well...
