In a few short days I will be leaving the Democratic Republic of Congo. In some ways I feel as if I just got here, and yet almost an entire year has passed since I arrived here last March. I have learned so much from the people here, from this place. I think that the magnitude of my experiences will not settle upon me for some time. I will be back to work in just a few short weeks in a world that is so unbelievably far from this one and in all honesty I am just not sure how I will manage. But then I suppose I wasn't sure how i would manage when I arrived.
