When there’s one week left of a trip, your mind starts working overtime. On one hand, this trip was only 3 weeks, and we still have 1 left…a whole other week of new adventures, of funny stories, of learning new things. On the other had, we only have one week left. As much as I try to not get into countdown mode, where I picture the days ticking away, I can’t help but think about what little time we have left.
Everyone seemed a little spent after we arrived back in Dagbamete from our trip to Cape Coast. I think many of us realized how much this place feels like home. What makes a trip so interesting is how different people go through different emotions, at various points throughout the trip. Sometimes people needed to take a step back and have some alone time, while others needed to celebrate and to be with everyone. With a different group of people, these different emotions could have been difficult to go through, but I think on this trip, it has shown us how close we are. We have truly become a family and we have helped each other through the highs and lows. Which makes it that much more important for us to cherish every moment we have.
