So my final week is here. As I began my year here in Ecuador, the end seemed so far away. I didn’t even think about it.
Now that I am in my final week, I can hardly believe it. This week
for me will be overflowing with emotion. Soon I will see my family! Soon I will be able to sit face to face with close friends and chat over a cup of tea!
This final week in Ecuador will be full of many “leaving do's” (despedidas). I don’t like parties or events that are for
me, having attention on me. I am not looking
forward to saying goodbye to friends and family here.
How do you say goodbye to someone who you may
never see again in your life?
