|An undernourished Malawian boy |
from a village during my last trip
The extra time will also give me some time to push ahead with a large number of things I have to do to start bringing the various parts of my thesis together. This includes carrying out some more quantitative work on the Malawi Farm Input Subsidy Programme and tidying up some chapters ready to put together some papers for publication when I come back.
I've been feeling (and being) very productive these past few days so hopefully that will continue. I think being in a new place helps to clear the mind a lot. Also, being here in Malawi reminds me why I'm actually doing the research in the first place.
