Our final adventure

Greetings Parents and Friends,

Our TTS18 community has returned to Maun from our final adventure into the Makgadikgadi Salt Pan National Park and Planet Baobab. We spent two nights camped under spectacular, blooming baobab trees and enjoyed each others company. Students wrapped up finals smoothly and enjoyed the few days of relaxation. Our final adventure yesterday began with a sunrise ride in open air safari vehicles through the National Park. We made our way to a Meerkat colony, where students got up close and personal with a meerkat family. The photos are spectacular! We journeyed next to the salt pan, that is as large as the country of Switzerland! Our final stop in our day (between breakfast and lunch out on the drive…) was to a 4,500 year old Baobab tree, known as Chapman’s Baobab…McCall was excited!

In addition to this final adventure, we’ve spent our days discussing the transition home. On the parent blog are some of the thoughts and concerns that we’ve discussed within our community. The girls are both excited and nervous to return home. They are excited to see friends and family and pass on their knowledge and stories, while also nervous about leaving each other and nervous about how to best share those stories.

Please visit the parent blog for more information on how to support your daughters' transition. Thank you sharing your beautiful, loving, intelligent daughters with us for the past 3 and 1/2 months.

-Leah, Aunge, Caroline, Brenna
