Adventure is Worthwhile

Journal: Today was our last day of our first volunteer session. Even though we’re only leaving for the weekend, I’m going to miss Pommern – it really has become a home away from home. We started our day with our usual teaching assignments. Deborah and Aidan had a breakthrough with their pre-primary class. The students are really starting to remember the English that they’re teaching. The morning flew by and before we knew it, it was time for the wedding send-off party! The bride (who’s from Pommern) was celebrating her marriage, which will take place tomorrow in the groom’s village. It was a fun celebration, and we enjoyed seeing how the community really came together – and how full of joy everyone was. In the afternoon, we were invited to the football grounds for an impromptu volleyball game – it was so fun to get to play with the students and everyone enjoyed themselves. Tomorrow we head to Ruaha for our safari and will be back on Monday. We’re very excited to see the incredible animals and can’t wait to start the second half of our time here in Pommern.
