Looking specifically at today's work, I can say that we all feel like we accomplished so much. Seeing the progress we made on the home in La Place is extremely nice after a long day of pounding, sweeping, pulling out nails and scrubbing walls. Even though the trip is coming to an end, the entire group has so much to take back to Hamline. Doing this work has definitely given me the motivation and urge to continue volunteering back in Minnesota.
Tonight is yet to happen, but as I said we are all going to celebrate all the hard work we have done this week by going out to eat and discover whatever we can of this great and unique city. Since our flight is at 6am tomorrow, most of us are going to pull an "all nighter" as we have to leave to the airport by three o'clock. Most of this night will consist of packing and cleaning our apartment. Saying goodbye is always bitter sweet however, the time we have spent here will be forever unforgettable.
A warm goodbye from New Orleans! See you soon Minnesota!
