UK Journal #33
Today I woke up early so that I could take the 12:00 p.m.
kickboxing class which was again very intense, but a lot of fun. After kickboxing I said goodbye to a few of the martial arts students which was kind of sad to do, after all I may see them again, but some I may never see again. It was hard to become attached to all her students and then so quickly have to detach. It was really hard. I went back to Louise’s and showered and then she and I walked to the park where we would meet Mieke and interview the both of them. After interviewing them I came back to her martial arts studio and watched the kids sparring class and testing class. I then got a chance to say goodbye to some of the kids and parents… which again was very hard to do. Today I also spent some time packing that way I could get up in the morning and leave without worrying about not having time to pack. I decided to go to bed early so that I could have a fresh start in the morning before getting back on several planes.
