What with recovering in Bangkok and Phnom Penh for additional 2 weeks after surgery, and going to Vietnam for a birthday week escape... October came and went too quickly. The recovery period was so nice because I was able to spend time with friends during the holidays. My birthday week was also amazing because I had the chance to be with my closest friends in a new city doing fun things. They spoiled me rotten, and I have to say, it was the best October 24th I've had in a long while.
I feel older, slightly wiser, and a little bit more mature. In the last 16 months of Peace Corps, I've done the biggest amount of growing in the shortest time possible. It's been a crazy but wonderful journey! I wouldn't change a thing.
I went home to some sad news yesterday (14.11.18). My host family's dog, who has been my closest and favorite pet in Cambodia, had been hit by a car and passed away. I'm still not used to the idea of him being gone and keep looking out for him whenever I'm at home.
The beginning of November has been very eventful. I finally got a chance to see Charlie Put in concert. I also got interviewed there. Life goals, achieved! Now that I'm back in the village, I have been swamped with work for the Garden Training my counterparts and I are hosting at the health center.
