We have made some great friends in Tofo and leaving is assuredly bittersweet. On one hand we are off on new adventures in Africa and the world, on the other we are both genuinely going to miss this place and the many wonderful people we met here! We went dancing and to parties and concerts several times, soaked up the relaxed vibe on the beach and in town; but by far the most meaningful experiences here have been the long conversations we've had with people, often around a shared meal. For my birthday James and Jerry cooked up a culinary tempest and we had a great dinner with them and Carlotta and Sabrina. Carr spent a couple of days working on a fantastic drawing for James' house, and we all named it. Carr and I brought an utterly delicious lemon cheescake made by Jenny for my birthday cake and it was a fun and special night. I feel very grateful for being able to connect with (now former) strangers from other parts of the world, people who are refreshingly intelligent, alive, open and cool.
