It was hard for me to say goodbye

I liked the volunteer work in Mozambique very much, because I could forget everything else that was in Carinthia just through dancing with the girls in the boarding school. I have learned a lot from the girls, especially new dance steps. They showed me how African children make their hair and how they can be happy with what they have. At the beginning of my journey, I had the impression of a day like a year until after a week I really got to know the girls and closed them into my heart. In the end, I wanted to spend every single minute with the children and not in front of the computer or on a mobile phone!
In the end, it was very difficult for me to say goodbye, especially because the girls were crying too and they didn't let me go!
