Today I leave UNIMAS. I mailed home three 10kg boxes of stuff that should arrive in two weeks. My three exams last week went fine and I passed each of my classes. I bring back to Whitworth a mere nine credits but also a basic social proficiency in Malay and a wealth of unique experiences and new friendships.
An only partly-planned but fully exciting one month of travel around several places in Sarawak, plus Kota Kinabalu, Cambodia, and Bangkok awaits. Very fortunately, there are friends or at least contacts almost every place I'm visiting. This should make learning and exploring easier, and I'll be safe and well taken care of. No worries, Mom.
