Living in tents

For the past five weeks, I was able to experience what it would be like living in tents with much simpler living conditions, learning a completely foreign language and culture, and being almost totally cut off from communication to the outside world. This part of a special field training and although it is not really an accurate simulation of what life is like for many cross-cultural workers today, it was nevertheless a good experience for me to adjust to different living conditions and different methods of learning a language and culture.

The first set of pictures I am posting below are just to do with life in the tents and on the campsite. All quite self-explanatory, except maybe for the two different kinds of little blue "houses" - one with a bucket as a toilet and the other with a bucket to use for taking a shower...
