Meditation is the mind focusing on the mundane task. Gnothi seauton. Wabi sabi...

This is not your parent’s laundromat. It has food section, multiple TVs and free wifi. We will be using this place until we get our own washer and dryer. .

The US president is on the front page of major newspaper in South Africa for not the reason the Americans would be proud of. If you don’t wanna hear negative things about the stable genius, do not travel outside the US. Correction! They love him in Russia and North Korea😅😂🤣

It was a sad moment to say goodbye to our host family. They treated us like their own since we arrived at the homestead two years ago. They are kind and generous family that provides assistance to the community in needs. We cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us during our Peace Corps service❤️❤️❤️ .

Late posting of my last day at Malindza Refugee camp community clinic. Wow! 26 months already? So much more that needs to be done. I am hopeful that Peace Corps eSwatini will continue having volunteers at this site. .

It’s school break here in eSwatini but my counterpart and some vocational staff came back and took us for braai (BBQ) lunch. They said, we cannot leave eSwatini without having proper goodbyes. Swazis are so kind and friendly that it didn’t feel we’ve been here for 26 months. .

Late posting of ADRA group farewell lunch party. Some elders, ministry of agriculture and local politicians showed up representing Malindza Chiefdom. Our Peace Corps service and projects were completed but the peanut butter business will continue long after we depart. . .

Vegetable salmon cake, green salad w/ spicy deep fried baby hake, spaghetti w/ green salad on side and vegetable noodle that I usually make for lunch. I am so excited to be back in the states soon to use the oven and charcoal grill for fresh veggies and seafood. .

Activities that are hard to get use to. Walking in the dusty, desert heat of Lubombo for two kilometers then ride on an overloaded packed bus for an hour to reach the town. This is one of those time when parts of your body gets numb due to lack of blood circulation. It’s also very claustrophobic, in your face closed encounter of some kind. This bus stops half a dozen more time picking up more passengers before reaching our final destination. The bus conductor kept telling the passengers to move closer to the back of the bus where I was standing. I like many things about my two years Peace Corps service in Eswatini but the public transport is not one of them☹️
