This I meant to post before we left but never seemed to get around to it so I will post it now. The title of this blog is Don't Wake Me Up because on our way to Delft that was the song that was playing in the van by Chris Brown. It got me to thinking how fast this trip has been going by. In the song there is a line that goes 'I don't wanna fall, fall, fall, fall asleep'. In order to soak up every second of this experience I often feel that I don't want to sleep with such limited time left in this place rich in beauty and love. This place is like a fairytale and much like the song says I don't want to wake up in a sense because waking up means returning home to all the business waiting there for me. Here everything is simple, peaceful, and full of happiness. Continuing with the effortless simplicity will be next to impossible to carry with me on my return to the U.S.A. I dread going home and wish I could stay here forever. I can't even fathom leaving all these wonderful people in this city exploding with energy and livelihood. I never thought I would meet as many people as I did and become as close with them as I have in such a short time. Capetown feels like home to me and leaving "home" I have no doubt will weigh on my heart.
