Gotcha Day Part 1
This morning was my last official visit to the orphanage where I had to leave Lucy behind. I arrived at 9am this morning after visiting the bank to change a little money and just took it all in for one last time that way. The taxi dropped me off and I strolled over to the groupa area where she was waiting outside with the rest of the crew. They turned her stroller around and she looked up to see me and reached out both arms as if to ask me to pick her up. It was like she knew that today was the day that she was leaving and she was ready.
We had a nice few hours together, ate some yogurt and had some fruit star cracker things that Dena packed for her to try. Then we did a walk around the whole orphanage so I could put on video the whole place. I got a few pictures of the nannies and then went back to the taxi to go grab a few things and head back to the hotel to ready for my 4pm pick up. Two hours away from that time and just started to realize the the journey is coming to a close in this city. There are still a number of steps to go before Sat, but one day at a time!
Here are some pictures of today and yesterday.
