Our first day at the SOVA office was very slow. We didn't really know what we were meant to be doing. We had an introductory meeting where the staff introduced themselves and we explained some details about ourlives. We also learnt how SOVA works and what it does. The next few days at the office and we still don't really know what needs to be done - as if we don't really fit in anywhere. It's very frustrating but we have been told to just be patient.
We got to know the market in Koraput within a couple of days - where to buy the best fruit and veg and where we can buy treats like chocolate and baked beans. We have so far avoided the meat alley as it smells so dreadful and I can't imagine the meat is that good quality so I may be going veggie for the trip. We're all topping up on our protein by eating eggs with almost every meal!
