Really missing my boy today

I spoke to Hamza earlier today, just a short while before he had to board the boat to leave the resort he has been staying at for the past 2 days. For the first time since this trip started he wasn't gushing with news about his day. Instead, his responses to my questions were mostly short and monosyllabic. I think he's just.......tired. Maybe the fast pace of his trip, and the fact that he is sleeping in a new bed every 2-3 nights is starting to take a toll on him. It was hard to listen to him like that. I'm sure he's still having a good time, but today in his own words, "The bus rides are getting longer and longer". And if you think of it, he must be exhausted; there hasn't really been any down time since his journey started a week ago. I am hoping he'll get some sleep on his long bus ride today, so that he arrives at his next destination more rested and ready to learn something new. His next couple of days will be spent at a farm; maybe the pace will be a little bit slower? I suppose we'll find out.

One more week until I get to see his smiling face again.........

What an amazing experience! I am so jealous of Hamza! Hope he's able to rebound in this leg of his trip! Can't wait to see photos!
