Almost time to say goodbye… | June 2, 2010

Tomorrow will be my last day in Mombasa. Emotional farewells to children, teachers, friends and my host family await, before Maggie and I head to the island of Lamu for two days of relaxation (which makes it sound like we have both been working hard recently – Maggie has, I haven’t). I have grown sadder by the day to be leaving Mombasa. There are even times when I think I could live in this city, although there are others when certain things, such as the power cuts and lunatic drivers, which make me change my mind. Let’s see how much I miss it when I am back in Germany!

My colleague Emily and her husband have found a plot of land to build a new school on. This is a very exciting development, and I am now going to try to raise some cash for them to buy the land, after which things should move quite quickly – finding the land was always going to be the trickiest part.

Anyway, I should be able to write one more time before flying home.

Bye for now.
