Days 14-18 were a production blur. This trip has offered dislocation-as-catalyst in profound ways, but during the process of my Fulbright Global Scholar Award (link to info and application), and its hours of planning trips to three locations, I feel paralyzed by all this change without my family. This program is excellent for making connections and doing preliminary research, but not ideal for production. Just FYI for all future applicants. Know your stage in the process.
