Mixer of NIU and Saint Augustine Students (24 June)

Our stay in Mwanza was short yet very satisfying. Arriving after noon, we dropped bags at St. Dominic’s hostel on the lake before finding lunch. DSC03664Then we headed to St. Augustine University in Mwanza where we met with a group of students from economics, sociology, and public relations/marketing. We had a lively and engaging discussion comparing US and Tanzanian educational systems, and the implications of each for economic development. We learned much from each other, and students exchanged email and Facebook addresses to remain in contact. We had our farewell dinner with Padri Misana, Jeanine Thurmaier, and Mary Lenz at the lakeside Tilapia Restaurant. We were pleased to be joined by recent NIU graduate Mary Okeyo (M in Ed) and her husband John Ouma. The breeze kept mosquitoes away and the candles were bright enough to light our faces and dinners!
