Photo Reflection: Month 2 (May 2011)

My host family.
The strangers that became family and my home away from home.

Site Announcement - the moment I learned where I would call "home" for two years.
Kumakwane, the village that stole my heart.

Kesaobaka, my host brother, celebrating his birthday.
Before this day, he had never truly celebrated his birthday.
On this day, my host mother told me that I showed her how
you can make someone feel truly special, even if you don't
have much to give. This was the first time I knew the potential
we have as Peace Corps Volunteers to give back in simple ways.
