Back in August, when I was wondering what this experience was going to be like, I wondered what kinds of friends I would make…
I had an idea, but didn’t think I would become so close to a group of people in three weeks’ time. Three years in Samoa is one thing, but three weeks in Tanzania is another. I was pleasantly surprised by some of these women (and a few local friends) and have grown to love them very much. Even when it’s a rough day, someone’s ready with a smile or a hug or a stupid inside joke (of which there are many) that will make me laugh.
So, to my Hakuna Penda/Internet Cafe crew, you know who you are. Thank you and Asante Sana for everything. You helped make this trip everything it was and I look forward to seeing you all back in TZ or somewhere in the states (or NZ!!).
