Michael's Peace Corps contract ends soon, and Rachel starts high school next year, so we're beginning our good-byes to Dakar. We just got the definite decision about ten days ago that we'll be leaving. We've finished telling our staff, Rachel has told her friends, and I've told Suffolk. We'll leave with such tenderness for Senegal and all the people we've met here. We have been so happy here.
Where are we going?
We don't know yet. Rachel is applying to a wonderful high school in Portland, Oregon. I am applying for jobs. And Michael, always employable, just continues working full time, full speed with all the Peace Corps volunteers he keeps healthy and happy.
