It's early Friday morning and I write this while preparing to leave for our last full day of adventures in Cape Town. We are spending the morning/afternoon in Cape Point.
Being a part of this program was really a blessing. As a non-traditional student with a full-time job, I'm lucky enough that I have an employer not only understanding, but supportive of me running away for 3 weeks to be a part of such an amazing program. (It also helps that I work for the area in which these programs are housed.) Regardless, I really do feel as though the stars did align for this to happen.
Now what? How do you leave a place like this, have an experience as intense as this - and be expected to return to 'normal' life in less than 72 hours? To go from doing service work with small children in one of the most impoverished area of the world and visiting amazing sites to then return to my desk and compile financial reports Monday through Friday?
Something to think about.
