One last blog...


This blog was dedicated to a year of ramblings from Zambia, so it really should end now that I am back in the United States. I arrived in Portland, Oregon on Monday morning and this week I have been soaking up the good life with my family. Yesterday my 5 year-old nephew Tate took me to his kindergarten class for “showing.” You know, this is where a child gets to bring in something special from home to show your class-mates. This was rather flattering, you know, that my nephew wanted to show off his “Auntie Carmen.”

I return to NYC just after the Thanksgiving holiday and look forward to re-connecting with folks from Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church and my good friends in the Princeton/Philly area.

I rather like blogging, so stay tuned. Perhaps your Carmie will come up with something new. Maybe I’ll get high-tech and sophisticated. Ummm, probably not.

Thanks for reading.

You should look into printing your blog into a hard copy book. At least so you have a solid record of the past year to reflect on and leaf through. There are a couple great websites that help you do it. I think blurb.com is one, but I haven't tried it myself.

Oh, how I will MISS Carmen-in-Zambia! You have filled a hole in my heart for a year now! What's a Zambia loving girl to do?

I just found your blog while researching Kitwe. There is a possibility that we might be moving to Kitwe in the near future. I enjoyed reading about your experiences. I am curious how your communication was with your family stateside? Were you able to have an internet connection at your house? Was it possible to email or chat online? How was the regular mail delivery? Thanks so much. My email is breedlove75@hotmail.com

Carmen,

Welcome back. We missed you. We wanted to make it to your graduation and couldn't. We felt bad. Your blog is wonderful and what memories you will be able to share with others over the years. Keep in touch, Love, The Rohrs
