over the hills and far away

Looking out onto the countryside of my new home with people from my old home feels beautiful and yet somewhat bizarre. Being able to share this place with others, in a way, makes me own it more.  For a week, I became an ambassador to another world.  As we traveled up and down mountains, through tiny villages and large towns, passed camels, shepherds, and donkeys packing, well, almost everything – I got to witness the expressions of new eyes.  The same expressions I must have had months ago.

These visitors brought refreshment and news of home.  They provided an exciting break from monotony and much needed companionship.  I am very thankful for their hearts.
