mixed feelings


I have said good bye to my friends and colleagues in Sokode.  It was not easy, but they threw lots of parties for me.  Several going away events were thrown in my honor, 2 at schools I worked with and 2 others with friends and colleagues.  I did not cry at any of them, although I came close at times.  It was mostly just laughing and telling jokes and not focusing on the fact that I’m leaving.

I realized that lots of people would have liked to say good bye or give me something to remember them, but they didn’t have anything to give.  So I bought a notbook and decorated the cover.  I asked everyone to write in it, draw in it, or do anything that would help me remember them.  People seemed to really enjoy that and it was nice to have a way to say good bye.
