Departure…

24 May

05/24/2005 Departure… Greetings! I am home in Washington DC, but preparing to leave for Tuzla on Saturday, May 28. It will be a long journey- I have approximately 11 hours of flying and a 6 hour bus ride before I arrive in Tuzla on Sunday. My bedroom currently looks like a tornado passed through as I sort through things trying to decide what to pack for my two months in Bosnia.
I am very excited about the opportunities I will have with Bosfam this summer. I have been working on webpages, articles and other information for Bosfam since February. I am ready to meet Beba and the other weavers, I feel like I already know them!! My nerves are a bit overactive lately, but I know this will be a great experience, and these women will impact my life in amazing ways as I work to help Bosfam.

My main goal this summer is to help Bosfam update their website to a more attractive and more lucrative site. I will also be helping coordinate the commemoration activities both in the US and Bosnia in honor of the 10th anniversary of the massacre at Srebrenica. I can’t imagine the emotions and passion the commemoration ceremony will elicit. I am both anxious and nervous to share these life changing moments with these women.
