"No human, nor any living thing, survives long under the eternal sky. The most beautiful women, the most learned men, even Mohammed, who heard Allah's voice, all did wither and die. All is temporary. The sky outlives everything. Even suffering." - Bowa Johar, Balti poet.

11 September 2008


Well today is the last day of staging at the hotel in Rabat. I have got A LOT to read in the next couple days, but I am excited about it all! Our Program Manager for YD seems totally awesome and I can not wait to work with him starting Friday! I miss everyone back home and will be thinking of you as i begin the real hard work tomorrow. I will be having 11 weeks of language (4 hours plus a day) and skill training . I will not be near the internet or phone for a while and I am needing to connect with my host family and program so I can learn the language and culture in these intense next 11 weeks. If you do not hear from me much in the next few weeks that is why... i still will be missing you all like crazy! Please by all means send me some snail mail to keep me company and getting some form of english to me:) there is something very beautifully spiritual about this place, something that is not found back in the states.

Hi Hillary,
Thanks for the update! Glad to hear you are there safe and sound. Let us know how to say Hi/Bye and where is the rest room in Berber ;-)
Good Luck on the quick study.. and you thought school was over. But this is so different right?
Stay sweet,

Hey Hill,

Do you think you could post your address on here or send it to me so I know where to send snail mail?

I'm so jealous that you are going to be learning a whole new language and culture. It's truly amazing and I'm so proud of you! Good luck!
