Milene in Africa
"Back to life, back to reality"... I got back this Saturday and life in the UK is such a big contrast to my life in Mikindani (the suburb outside Mombasa where I was living). It's been a few difficult days, trying to re-adapt to the British reality. I've found myself really quiet and not really wanting to talk to people. I think I'm still going through the process of understanding what I've just been through. It's tough. I miss the children and the school routine and I'm dreading going back to work. And although I'm excited to see people, I really don't know what to tell them. It's been a journey and I still have to understand all that I have learnt and try to create a way of never forgetting that lesson. I wish I could explain it better...right now I'm just happy to be back to hot showers and my hair straightners...how pathetic is that? ahahah. I hope you are all ok and I'll be seeing you all soon!
