Well, everyone, I'm back from Kenya! First of all, I'm happy to announce that my bunny has made a miraculous recovery! Although the vet previously told us he had brain cancer, his head has gone back to normal, which means he most likely suffered from a rare stroke. He may live for many years to come!
I can't even begin to describe the experience I had in Kenya. There are no words for what I felt, no way to explain how it changed me. I fell in love with Africa. I cried for hours on the plane ride home, wishing I could stay longer, especially considering how difficult it was to get there in the first place. I love every member of my Youthlinc team, and I'm already going through separation anxiety now that I don't get to see them everyday. We shared something truly special. We will always hold Africa in our hearts.
I'm super jet-lagged at the moment, so I'll do a more detailed Kenya post later. For now, though, I'm going to share with you our team's dance to Waka Waka, which we performed at the closing ceremonies in Kiamuri. We didn't have much time to prepare for the ceremony, what with all of the other work we did in the village, so this is the best we could come up with. Here's to you, Youthlinc 2010 team!
