Feeling 50/50

Standard

I am equally excited and sad at the same time. Very excited to see many that are so close to my heart back home in The States, yet I am sad to leave many behind for the month I will be away from Kenya. How has it happened that I feel so closely connected and entangled in this “foreign land” ?

WHAT I WILL MISS

public transportation- those crazy matatus

walking everywhere

the pace of life here

teaching art to my students

eating with my hands

chai and chapati

nice weather always

people I am close to

fresh fruit

yogurt drinks

swahili

WHAT I LOOK FORWARD TO

walking late at night

driving a car

not standing out

swimming

wearing shorts

drinking wine

eating my mom’s food

experiencing summer and fall

seeing many friends

not being the foreigner

feeling competent

experimenting with new recipes
