Touring the University of Iringa

After a relaxing morning, we took a bus to the University of Iringa and were given a tour of campus. We spent the rest of the day preparing for our upcoming trips to nearby villages.
While Professor Styrkowski was being interviewed on Radio Furaha, the rest of us had the morning off.

After our relaxing morning, we hopped on the bus and drove to the University of Iringa. Gary Langness, the main overseer of the Lutheran Center operations, led us on a personal tour.

The campus had beautiful buildings, landscapes, and shrubbery. The university was opened in 1994 by Arnie and Mary Blomquist with a class of just 37 students, who all studied theology. Now the school has more than 4,000 students and offers 35 programs.

After the tour, we prepared for our upcoming trips to three villages near Iringa: Ihemi, Illula, and Kitapalimwa-Mlangali. We went over the layouts of the villages and discussed questions we had.

There to help us were students from the University of Iringa and the Saint Paul Partners team, who will be traveling with us to the various villages. The University of Iringa students are majoring in community development and will get credit for helping us with these projects.

Once the hard work was completed, everyone enjoyed a jam session in the sun. Students from both universities and Saint Paul Partners joined in to create fabulous melodies. Ken even played some impromptu solos on the saxophone.

To end the day, we all ate dinner at Mama Iringa's, where we had one last bonding session before we will split off to the different villages.

  1. the watch is still fairly legible at a glance. Running along [b][url=https://www.mywatchesonline.co/]watches replicas[/url][/b] the periphery of the watch is an hour and minute track, [b][url=https://www.mywatchesonline.co/hublot-replica-watches/]Replica Hublot[/url][/b] and the watch’s Breguet-style hands are consistent with previous Vingt-8 iterations.[b][url=https://www.mywatchesonline.co/tag-heuer-replica/]Tag Heuer Replica[/url][/b] On the watch’s caseback, Voutilainen has shifted expectations once again due to the presence of a running seconds display and a power reserve indicator that shows off the model’s 65 hours of running autonomy.

  2. Nei primi anni ’50 il mondo aspettava di vedere?l’impermeabilità di un orologio?compiere un passo avanti.
    Più che in termini di mera resistenza all’acqua chi praticava immersioni, attività che in quel periodo stava crescendo esponenzialmente, necessitava di un vero e proprio strumento al polso.
