Today was triumphant for us. For the last few days, we had been working hard on the eco-waste bin, but today we accomplished so much on the project!
We did have a small setback the day prior due to weather, but I am truly proud to say that everyone stepped up to the plate and put in at least 150% of their effort. I love the feeling of working and the extra challenge of a language barrier was something that used to bother me, but as we learned how each other worked and found a rhythm and balance with each other, it became our most productive day yet.
I feel as thought going through rough times of work is the best way to grow closer to people, and I know that we have built a small community here in Tibet. We laugh without knowing a single word that the other is saying. We pose together for pictures so that we can all remember these times. We share meals, conversations, memories. Today I realized that nothing can take these special moments away from me, and every moment is one that I can treasure.
