Since I still don’t have words to describe my last day at Kositsamosorn, I think some pictures are in order:
Saying goodbye was hard, but the memories I have of these kids are incredible. They have taught me so much about how to love and how we as human beings should treat each other. I know that their memories of me will be soon forgotten as soon as the next volunteer comes along, but my memories of them will last a lifetime.
I am spending my last two days trying to pack in as much stuff as possible. Last night, I went to take pictures of our neighbody lady’s garden and ended up spending 3 hours with her having tea, looking at pictures of her garden, and practicing some guided meditation. She is so sweet and lives a very peaceful life that I am fairly envious of.
Today I went to the Teak Mansion (summer home of King Rama V) and the National Museum of Thailand. Quite a lot of Thai history for one day, but I’m a little bit of a dork when it comes to museums, so I enjoyed myself.
Tonight I am going to see a traditional Thai masked dance show at a historic theater in Bangkok. Tomorrow is a lot of last-minute souvenir shopping at the weekend market, and then I jump on a plane to come home.
