Village Farewell Ceremony

(Fri. July 13th)

When the village Chief shares that I have changed the village for the better and that the kids will miss me, I wonder if he’ll ever know how mutual the sentiments are… At the beginning of this journey, I hoped to have questions answered I never knew to ask. I now know that I will return here again soon, that I have many projects to accomplish, that I know where to begin, and that the blessings of this cultural exchange of one “yevoo” spending time to learn the ways of the village are far-reaching. Perhaps one of those exponential benefits that know no bounds and cannot me measured, nor adequately put into words.
