Saying Goodbye

I have finished with Worldteach and Rusumo High School. I am no longer a teacher. I am unemployed. I have pretty mixed feelings about that. It was very sad to say goodbye to a lot of people like my English Club, my students and some of the other teachers, but at the same time, I’m happy to get moving again. After 10 months I’m looking forward to getting home.

But first, Zanzibar! I am leaving tomorrow at 5:30 AM for a 30-hour bus ride to Dar es Salaam. From there I’ll take the ferry to Zanzibar, a tropical island complete with beaches, reefs, ancient Stonetown, snorkeling, seafood and all that. It should be pretty amazing and you should all be jealous!

After that I will take another 30-hour bus ride back to Kigali and after a couple days fly to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for about 3 days before flying back to DC then Toronto. That means I’ll be back in North America in 3 weeks. See you then!

you say goodbye, I say hello.
Hello. Hello.
Well, I probably won't say 'hello' to you directly in the near future, but in my heart always.
Totally jealous of Zanzibar. BUT I might try to get to Beijing or Shanghai while Obama is here. check check! Who's jealous now!? Actually, I may not get the visa in time, so maybe i'll be stuck.
ANYWAY, happy trails.
