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.
