Dear Cape Verde,


I guess I just want to start off by thanking you. When we first met, I honestly had no idea what to expect. I mean how could I have? People told me about you and maybe some things we would get to do together but you have far surpassed anything I could have ever imagined. You’ve allowed me to meet some of the best friends I’ve ever had. I mean it wasn’t always easy and in fact it was harder more often than not, but wow I can stress enough how glad I am that I pushed through. Through all the days with freezing showers, no power and 90 degrees outside. Oh man, the patience you have taught me. I can’t count on two hand how many times you’ve pushed me out of my comfort zone. It felt like every day I was with you was an entirely different journey. One day was the greatest day of my life, the next was the worst. I can tell you one thing. You’ve allowed me to meet people who are of a whole different culture, try food I’ve loved and hated but mainly loved. The memories we’ve made together will last me a lifetime and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to repay you for the things you did for me. Whether it was playing basketball on Saturday mornings or meeting at Ima’s house on Friday nights, these memories are impossible to forget. Since I’ve been with you, my relationship with the Lord has grown so much! I think that’s probably been the most exciting thing about being with you.  I didn’t want this to be too long but it would be a injustice if I left tomorrow without thanking you for EVERYTHING you did. Well okay I can’t actually thank you for everything because then this letter would last forever. So I sum it all up to say, you changed my life and don’t you dare think this will be the last time you’ll see me. So until then,
