Stateside this Sunday!

So I'm officially headed home in 36 hours. As the end is in sight, there are many things I'm going to miss about Senegal. I'm going to miss my host family in Dakar and their constant enthusiasm and always welcoming smiles. I'm going to miss being able to take a car rapide to the market and purchase beautiful, colorful fabric to be brought to the tailor. I'm going to miss making tea with my host brother Diama.

Yesterday, I went to the market to buy tea, bissap, and cafe touba to bring back to the states to share a bit of the culture of Senegal. It will be hard to say goodbye, but I'm very excited to come home, and to see how my perspective of life in the US will change.

This is a short entry, as I've been busy this week. But I'll be seeing everyone soon!
