If only I could pack Kenya into a suitcase! Students, scenery, animals, weather, friends, memories; take them all with me. As it stands now, I don't want to leave. I know I'll miss it terribly. Today was a wonderful day, full of reminders of how special these students are to me, and how special they make me feel.
One quote from an expatriate-returned-home Japanese businessman: "My advice about going home? Don't."
That's how I'm feeling. A fellow returning SM said it too: "I'm not ready to return to the old routine."
It's going to be awkward. It's going to be weird.
It's going to be worth it?
