Leavin' on a Jetplane (again)

Since then, I have been in the capital wrapping up all of the medical and administrative loose ends and spending time with my friends.
Well, here it is, my last blog from the Dominican Republic. Tomorrow I will be getting on a plane and going home for good (or at least for the time being). Last weekend I had an inauguration of my projects in my site and then a despedida (spanish for going-away party) in my site and in Santiago. I said all of my goodbyes to my community on Saturday and then Sunday morning climbed in the back of a pickup truck for my last ride out of town. It was sad and strange to say goodbye to all of the people who have been my friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers over the last two years. I am going to try my best not to be one of those Peace Corps volunteers who says that they are going to be back to visit and then disappears forever.
