After a week of teaching, observing, preparing to teach, cooking, cleaning, and enduring the heat, we all needed a bit of R&R. So various groups of volunteers met up at Samara Beach. After a 7.5 km walk with Kristen (as much for my head as my hips!) I was ready for something cold and a bit of music. Tiffany joined us and I spend time at the beach EXACTLY the way I like. I may have gone into tourist mode and I promise to make amends with all the powers that be that want me to integrate, but that little bit of ahhh is just what I needed!
