I can’t believe my time here is pretty much over, as I have loved every minute of it and can’t wait to return. I leave tomorrow on an afternoon flight, so today is mainly packing and saying my goodbyes.
Today I helped the Pakistani refugee family with various things. They are lovely people and I enjoy showing them around and helping Ornid with his Spanish and Noreen with her English. Mary is their little 2 year old who is an adorable handful. Every day she hears about 5 different languages: Her mother speaks Urdu and Punjabi to her, while her dad speaks English and Thai to her, all while being surrounded by people speaking Spanish. I swear she’ll be a super fast language learner when she gets older with all the brain synapses she is firing hearing those words. ;)
I've officially ordered my taxi for the morning, so I guess I'd better finish packing. It's always hard to leave a place you've fallen in love with. I will return though; the city, the mountains, and the people are already pulling me back.
