The last few weeks have been full of loads of lovely visitors which really makes Ende a rather enjoyable place to be. Shortly after my return from Bali we hosted a going away party for all of the VSO volunteers who will be leaving us soon. It was great to have everyone together but also sad to see so many volunteers leaving so soon. In April we said goodbye to Morris and Michelle who have both finished their two year placements with VSO here in Flores. It was also my first chance to meet Sarah and Pete from Makassar and Alanna and Danny from Bajawa.
But April wasn’t just filled with visits from other VSO volunteers. I also got a huge surprise when I found out my friend Ashley and her fiance Chad would also be making the trip to Ende for a visit! I think we figured it out that we hadn’t seen each other since we graduated from Camosun College back in 2007. A total blast catching up again, on the other side of the world.
