Field Work

Field work has been going very well. It is, however, a very slow process. I can’t believe how amazing the workers are.  They have been so helpful and patient.  They know where to find all of the children we are looking for which is a hefty part of conducting this research.  On average, it takes a little over an hour to do one interview.  After that, we get back into the car and go to the next family, which may be in a different village.  Many children fight the process, i.e. cry and run away.  I’ve learned to say oh, don’t cry, which everyone finds very funny.  Next week, I will be traveling up north by train to a very rural village and we will be conducting interviews there for six days.  It should be an interesting experience.
