Crystal shares some of her feelings on the last week of the first program.

The third and final week of the 1st summer session has unfortunately come to an end. Some of the fellow volunteers left to have fun in the sun on Zanzibar Island. While others made their way back to the states. However we were happy to welcome the new volunteers into the home this weekend. So I guess you can say the week has been bitter sweet. Over the three weeks we developed strong bonds with each other, so seeing people go hasn’t been great, but having the new volunteers come in is great. Besides the many departures and arrivals of volunteers some of us managed to squeeze in a hike to the base of Mt. Meru where we hiked to a beautiful waterfall. The hike was definitely a test of grace and balance, which I failed at miserably. I probably slid most of the way down the path. It was all worth it though, because the waterfall and the surrounding landscape was gorgeous. It was also fun because more then half of the hike we had to walk upstream through the river bed. Once we got there, I decide to climb up and behind the falls. Between the hike and meeting the new volunteers it made a wonderful ending to the first session.
