Back home

Hamjambo Marafiki - feels good to use Kiswahili again!  Just a note to let you know I am back in the US.  Too many things were happening back here and I decided to cut my term of service short and return home. I have been in Colorado with Rusty, Shannon, Lucy and Josie, as well as Betsy and Dave.  It has been good ad I don't feel like I have been out of the country for 20+ months.  I traveled to see my sister Sandie in CA and am heading for the NW tomorrow for a visit with Katie and friends.  I am "homeless" for now and retake my townhouse August 1.  I am looking foward to getting caught up with all of you once I return to Lincoln.  I do have a phone and my number is 402 613 6269.  Hope this finds you all well and see you soon!   Pat

Welcome back, Pat.

BTW, I was a volunteer in Tala some years ago. I remember how difficult the first few weeks were when I returned. I would feel alien walking down the aisles of supermarkets and feel guilty wasting water while I was soaping myself in the shower.
