|Papa with my friend Jane|
I often think of the first few weeks and months here - not infrequently I felt alone and every new thing I did was a challenge. That's not totally gone away, but for the most part Gostivar and Macedonia have the familiar feel of home. My friends have had a lot to do with that. Luli and his family have made me part of their family, and my friends have sustained my spirit. I thank them all.
