"A man travels the world over in search of what he needs, and returns home to find it."- George Moore
Surprise! I am home! I’s a little early, but I wanted to surprise my sister Erin on the race day of her first marathon! She did wonderful despite shedding some tears when I popped out at mile 20!
My last week in Honduras was a
blur. Despite my pleas for no goodbye parties, my last week was filled with 5
(yes 5) despedidas. Hondurans love their despedidas and no party is complete
without some cake and pop and the immediate exit as soon as the food is consumed.
Seriously, this happens at every single party…no joke. Maria (the clinic cook and my Honduran
mom), my roommates upstairs, the clinic staff, the kids in the library, and the
clinic staff who lives at the apartment all threw separate parties for me. I
have never had so many people do that many nice things for me! I was so
thankful and was really sad to say goodbye to all those who I have come to
befriend this year. The kids, the nurses, the clinic staff, and my roommates
have all been a huge part of my life and it is weird not seeing them everyday.

Thanks for following, for staying in touch, and for all your support. I could not have done without all of you! All my love!
