There will be little updates for the duration I am here. Internet usage is limited to twenty minutes per time. There is no detectable WiFi signal. It is practically lectures from nine to five everyday. The weather here is humid. Mosquitoes are plenty. The Malaysian team will be presenting a review of today’s lectures tomorrow. I was selected to do the presentation. Each of us also have to do individual reports on the lectures everyday. It may seem like a lot of work but we are learning a lot of new things everyday from Independent Living leaders who have successfully implemented Independent Living projects in their areas. Shoji Nakanishi, the Father of Asian Independent Living and Muhammad Shafiq from Pakistan are the overseas resource persons. We also have Independent Living leaders from Thailand, namely Topong Kulkhancit, Terayudth Sukolhavit and Udomhook Choorat to share with us their success stories.
