Our whole morning was spent with scholarship-funded university students, including the young woman my partner and I help support. They presented to us, and we to them, on our programs and where voluntarism (for them) and internship (for us) fits in. I visit this group whenever I can, and was sad not to see some faces, but happy because I know they've graduated. There were about 30 students, 1-2 staff, and 9 of us in the room at any time, and though breezy enough, it was also pleasing to get out after 3 hours.

It turns out that former colleagues had just arrived with their own tour group, so K and I lunched with them at Anise Hotel's restaurant. It was fun to meet their group members as they arrived, and at a certain point we got out of their hair so they could focus. It was wonderful to see them again. I last saw one in Oregon many years ago, and the other in DF when I was last in Mexico.

I'll spend the rest of the afternoon packing for our trip to Siem Reap tomorrow. I may or may not have the wherewithal to blog after we get there.
