Last post from Uis!

Hello! One last brief update from Uis. Tomorrow morning I leave my village! This week was the last week of school (teachers had to stay to do paperwork) and has been full of goodbyes for me.
For those of you who don’t know, from here I’m going to Mozambique for a week! I’m not sure what the internet situation will be like, so please don’t get too upset if I don’t respond to emails right away ☺
Sorry I’m not full of insightful reflection or funny anecdotes, but things have really just been winding down around here. To close this chapter however, I would like to list the contents of a going away gift given to me by a grade 6 learner named Velonika:
4 advertisements torn out from magazines
2 bags of chips
1 page from an ovambo book with the first sentence translated
30 namibian cents
the front and back cover of a notebook.

Clearly wonderful, because these are things valued by an 11 year old, and I should mention that the box was very elaborately decorated.

So that’s all for now! I may be able to put something up from Mozambique, but if not have a good couple of weeks!
