Rebuilding Foundations

An exploration of international development work in Africa

A broken clock is right twice a day

Sometimes when my phone is buried in my purse, I try to peer at strangers’ watches to see the time.

It didn’t take long for me to notice that although many men here wear watches, they are rarely the right time.  Most don’t even seem to be working.

All beauty, no function.

    Hope that comment doesn’t also apply to the men there.
