Faleminderit!

12 Aug

I have had to leave Kosovo rather unexpectedly due to a family emergency. I do not believe that this is goodbye, so instead I will say thank you.

Thank you Igo, for welcoming me into your organization and allowing me to share in your work this summer.  You have truly inspired me.

Thank you Nicole, for teaching me to pronounce faleminderit and making me laugh when I needed it the most.

Thank you Alba, for sharing your love of music with me.

Thank you Besa, for your constant kindness.

Thank you Adelina, for your openness, honesty and compassion.

Thank you Dafina and Zana, for your friendship. I miss you both already!

Thank you readers, for sharing in this experience with me. I hope that together, we can dispel the misconceptions that so many hold about Kosovo.

And, last but not least, thank you Kosovo, for the experience of a lifetime.
