“Just Some Wrinkles, No Regrets”

My stay here in Uganda is coming to an end. I am at the stage of trying to process everything I have learned so that I can take it back with me to America. I am also at the stage of compiling my hefty research paper of the role of counseling in helping to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS. I am looking forward to our trip to Jinja next week and to spending the last week in Uganda with all my friends. This is probably my last blog because I am very busy with the last minute details.

I am excited to see people and to be home for the holidays. And I am sad to say goodbye to Uganda. Though I can’t anticipate that it will be my last goodbye. It will be interesting to see in what ways I incorporate this experience into my life in America. It was fun sharing a few of my experiences in Africa with you, and I will share any more that you want to hear.

P.S. I know I promised evidence of what Nick would look like in a gomis. But in the process of breaking, my camera erased my memory card full of pictures from the village, the ceremonies, the circumcisions, the family, and the friends. So… I will have to tell my stories another time in another way.
