The Best of Year One: #2

Visitors from Home

One of the toughest parts of coming over to Botswana was leaving behind friends and family. I figured that it was too long a distance and too expensive for anyone to visit. Luckily, I was wrong and my aunt, uncle, and mom got to come for a visit. We had a great time and I was shocked that everything went according to plan.

It was a little strange at times to be a tourist here but it was also nice to get to go on safari and get a chance to show off the best parts of Botswana. It is difficult to describe in words how meaningful it was for them to visit. It was a great trip and it meant so much to me that they would fly halfway across the world to see me.
