After arriving at our host training site, my site-mate and I were brought to play soccer with our host brother's friends. They had never seen a digital camera up close and were posing while Tom played with a few of them in the background.
Tom was teaching a very energetic student. This student was smart, but didn't know how to interact with her surroundings. Tom made it an effort to illustrate 'raising hands' as a respectful way to get someone's attention.
My neighbor and long time friend brought me over my Close of Service goodbye gift. A tradition dishdash, robe, head piece and prayer beads. We spent the evening with me dressed up and drinking coffee on the roof.
