A dream is coming true. A solidarity stay is taking shape and coming to life after weeks of preparation. The 10 people participating in the trip are truly excited.
Up and ready to roll at 4 a.m. in Montreal on June 1st, we down a group breakfast, pitch our luggage in the shuttle bus for the airport, do the usual check-in, and burst into uncontrollable laughter when we see our friend Martine’s passport photo … even the officer can’t keep a straight face. We’ve made his day, that’s for sure!
Checking in our luggage, then going through security, where we have to gulp down our water bottles at full speed … but where’s the bathroom anyways?!
It’s 3:30 a.m. back home in Quebec after 2 plane rides, including a 13 hour + flight to Seoul, the capital of South Korea … we’re a little worse for wear but about to board the plane for Cambodia where we’ll meet Development and Peace’s partners, with an unforgettable experience ahead!
