I will never understand how the first two weeks flew by so quickly with GSSW students in Bosnia. I felt very excited about the future of social work when I saw the insight, respect, curiosity and good humor among the students who traveled this journey with me. They have all, for the most part, left Sarajevo for home, for other travels or for adventures yet to be determined. Thank you also to Rita Hughes who came on this trip as the 2nd faculty member. What a treat it was for me and the students to spend time with this natural teacher. So, as much as I didn’t want to, I had to say dovidzenia to the students and to Rita. Our last day was spent at the impossibly beautiful village of Lukomir.
Now the DU students participating in International Service Learning Bosnia & Herzegovina (ISL BiH) have arrived and I am so happy to see them. Today internships started so we are off and running. Stay tuned for further news. A photo was to be posted here but the evening internet goblins have started in Sarajevo so the photo will have to wait.
