Day 6: Final Goodbyes

The band Semisonic once sang, "Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." Never is this quote more applicable than in the world of community service and travel. The cycle of giving continues on as one charitable act (or in this case, week) ends only to begin again in another time of another place. Travel not only shows a group of privileged collegiate students that there is a world outside their own, but that world can yield a large niche of their lives if they just open up their hearts.

I leave this final post with less words and more pictures. The captions are an aid for background information, but sometimes all a viewer really needs to do is look and they'll find the story.

We became biker chicks for the moment!
