I hate to sound like I'm counting down because we are having so much fun here, but we are already half way through the program.  Time is flying by so fast.  This week has been yet another eventful week.  Students have officially begun working in their teams, going forward, all labs will be done in groups.  This teamwork process mimicks the real  world and it's important that students get acquainted to working in teams.

In other news, Kavitha and I had lunch at Bush Canteen on Thursday, and guess who sat next to our table?  Asamoah Gyan.  Yes, the famed football player.  He asked to take pictures with us (haha, it was the other way round).  Gyan had the weight of Africa on his shoulders during the World Cup last year, and it felt great meeting the man who made Africa proud. We will document more celeb sightings.

Back to business, this week we've been talking about business plans, in preparation for the final deliverable.  We will continue on this topic for a few more sessions until we've covered all the major components of a business.  Looking forward to next week.
