I should have done this at least a few weeks ago, but better late than never! Never late is better, but I guess a part of me is still running on island time. My six months ended as of April 15, 2011 and it'll be a six months that I'll remember. As much as I intended to arrive as a volunteer and bring my skills and knowledge to the table, I came away from the experience with much more. I gained not only experiences and perspectives, but also friendships and memories.
Don't be dismayed at good-byes
A farewell is necessary before
you can meet again.
And meeting again after moments or lifetimes
is certain for those who are friends.
So long Jamaica, see you soon.
