I had my last day in the finca last week and had a fun goodbye party with the ladies in the hotel. I baked a cake on the stove and we enjoyed some coffee, cake, and lots of laughs, remembering all that we did over the last two years. I will miss those ladies and all the fun memories we had together in the hotel kitchen. However, will not miss the cold showers, the remoteness, and the lack of social opportunities in site. So, that being said, yes, it was a good experience and it was very challenging and pushed me farther than I've ever been pushed, however, the time has come to say goodbye and move on to the next phase in life.
We've got our COS Conference starting this week and it will be nice to get together with all the volunteers and say our goodbyes. I have made some great friends and I have to reiterate that volunteers are some of the best people I've met. Also, my Peace Corps bosses have been great. I've been allowed the greatest job freedom ever and with this freedom I was able to accomplish great things at site. So, a huge thanks to my amazing bosses who were always there to support me but never micromanaged me and allowed me the freedom to work to my fullest potential. It was this experience that gave me the confidence to launch into my next great adventure here in Central America.
So, that is the end and now on to new beginnings and new challenges. Thanks for reading and for all the support over the years. Cheers
