Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, December 4th, 5th, and 6th:
I took charge of all the food. We fed 37 people a snack about 10:30, lunch about 12:30 and another snack about 3:30. I spent most of my time preparing food, delivering food and then going to get more food. The hardest part was carrying it back and forth across that huge parking lot! I bet I walked it at least 25 times a day.
Alan was the “go to man”. Whenever the trainers needed something, Alan took care of it for them. Everything went well --- except for the fact that Tongan’s have no concept of time and Americans are slaves to their schedules. That was not a good combination. We spent quite a bit of time trying to keep people calm and happy.
