a journal entry: 1 april 2010
last full day in the village!
i’ve eaten so many chicken legs in the last 2 days that i may never eat another one ever again.
we ate lunch and dinner together at my house. then at dinner, everyone said nice things about me. sitemba said thank you for everything and to do for the people in america what i’ve done here. it was my favorite out of everyone’s. ba mary said she didn’t have the words. and that even joy will be missing me. even binashy was crying that she is going to be so lonely. i’ve reassured everyone that i will be coming back. and it’s mostly so i don’t burst into tears.
i didn’t get to see the sunset tonight because there was a big thunderstorm in the way.
