The next step

Cathay Pacific 770 just took off carrying our group towards Hong Kong on the way to be reunited with family and home. Amidst tearful goodbyes, we stopped to show off the perfected squat we’ve been developing over three months moving through some of the world’s most beautiful land- and seascapes, living with some of the most loving and generous communities, and taking care of business in diverse bathroom situations.

It has been a semester of amazing experiences and growth, and while we weren’t ready to say goodbye, we are excited for the next steps. We are excited to share our experiences and reflections deeply with family and friends; to start our next adventures; and to figure out how to keep cultivating the connections we’ve made with the people and places across Indonesia.

To our families in the US, see you soon! To our friends and families in Indonesia, and to each other, sampai jumpa lagi!
