I have my final farewell from Internado and Ixiamas folks last Thursday. Since most of the kids have left school and Internado at different times for the last 2 wks, I have been saying good bye for the last 2-3 weeks. Our dorm supervisor for the girls left about 3 weeks ago also.

Our oldest boy in the Internado, Miguel is having his high school graduation today in Ixiamas. I felt so bad to miss it, as I needed to be here in LaPaz to catch my flight on Monday.

We had our farewell dinner with all the kids, Internado staff and parents last Sunday.Some kids are left in the Internado this week for their make -up class and exams.

I will be at SIFAT, Alabama from December 2nd to December 20th. It`s a long journey to get home to the Philippines. I hope to be in the Philippines just before Christmas Day.

I have had many, many  good -byes in the last 10 years of my life, still I am not good with it. I have improve though. It`s still always emotional. 

I hope to share some of my reflections with my time here in Bolivia and Internado in my next  posting.

Hasta la vista,
