Congratulations to Thein Min Swe on his acceptance to the Master of Public Health program at the Harvard Chan School!
Van and I danced. We danced on our last night in the village. We danced at a party given in our honour where students and teachers alike came forth and thanked us for our work with them. We danced in the main hall of the monastery to very loud disco trance music. We danced alone.

Today marks the final bus journey to the Thanlyin monastery school. I am proud of the progress of my 11 students. I know I will miss these ladies after today. I have grown very fond of all of them and they are my first class in this new country; therefore, they will always be special to me.
