Wow! Can you believe it has already been a few months since we were all together in Bali? I feel like it was just yesterday that we were all hanging out at Madras waiting for Emma to FINALLY arrive in Bali. I wish we were back in Amed drinking all the ice chocolates and smoothies we wanted, talking to French boys on the beach, watching the sun rise and soaking up the stars at night. We all can still remember the kids smiles on their faces every afternoon when you stepped foot out of the cars and everyone screaming all of your names. I remember your strive to do better with lesson planning and all the effort you put into each class session. We all really admired the work you did and how amazing you made the trip for all of us!
I hope that you have had an amazing start to your new school year. I have no doubt that you have stayed true to your commitments that you left with at the end of the program and that you have a new understanding of your role in the world. Keep traveling and keep taking risks, I know that each of you is going to make such a difference in the world!
Miss you all and stay in touch!
Much Love from Lena, Gita, Nicole, and Yanti

-“OHH MYYY GAWD”- Sam
– The puppy everyone wanted to take home from Amed <3 Weepo
– The pounds of Roti Bakar (Sweet bread) we ate at EBI
-Yogi and Orange Shorts Boy
-Max’s Work dance that he killed at Nayaran Seva (the rest of you did great too)
-The many many much needed Indo Mart runs!
