As you know, I have now officially left my community. But, they've had some good-bye parties for me. Some before I left, and a few where they invited me back to enjoy the food and gifts.
In my schools, they had despedidas, and gave me that personalized teacher polo shirt (very official)
One community put on an event for me in the library, giving me that amazing personalized shirt (if you can't read, it says "Abby Rovira (heart) you"
My environmental group put on a farewell party, even gifted me an engraved silver platter.
Then they invited me back to main school I worked at. First, there was a little presentation "acto"
People got to say some words
There was some delicious food (that's my follow-up volunteer with me)
And some gifts (my personal favorites...a garfield backpack and an orange tube top)
Overall, a great time of good feelings and warm memories. Now, before I leave I have to go say the real goodbyes....
