It’s been an amazing two years but it’s finally time for me to say goodbye. I’m taking off tomorrow and the notion of leaving you has been as been as surreal as coming.
From stepping off the plane to learning how to navigate your transit lines; from teaching English to your engineers to teaching breakdancing to your children; from visiting your sites to showing visitors around your cities; from surviving inaka to surviving the earthquake.
You’ve taught me more about the world and also about myself. I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done. April 6th 2009 through March 25th, 2011 marks a life-changing journey that I’ll never forget.
It’s been real.
