I came back to Phonsavan last tuesday after 6 weeks living in Guesthouses due to my work and meetings in Vientiane, Phongsaly and Sayabouly. Great to be home again! And great to see how things have moved forward at the UXO Survivor Information Centre. Thanks a lot to Katharina Moebus who took over while I was away and who did a great job! Most of the furniture we ordered is finished, the Centre has fresh paint on the walls, complete new electricity, last weeks we got some first products from Saoban for the small souvenir-corner and it gets more complete with every new day… So nice to finally see the results of our hard work! And so many lessons learnt (I will write about them later)! Katti and me will be busy the next week with organizing and moderating a workshop for the update of the exhibition. This will be one of the last things to do (and I think almost the most important) and I’m looking forward to see the results. The Grand Opening of the centre will be around the 23rd of January – but I will keep you updated and hope to see some of you there!
