You say hello and I say goodbye!
Last week OYE welcomed back one of the long lost co-founders, Justin Otero-Eldridge. He will be with us for the next three weeks getting reacquainted after a year exploring the world. He has fallen right in step laughing with the scholarship students, visiting old friends and hunting mosquitos like an old pro.
And no he hasn't lost his rhythm!
In all of the excitement over Justin's return we were also full of sadness. This week Erin left OYE and returned to the states. We always tell the students that people come and go, and that OYE is just a family that keeps growing but that does not make it any easier to say goodbye.
Erin was an incredible asset to OYE for over a year and will be sorely missed by the OYE Honduras family. We wish Erin all the best and expect to see her back in Progreso, Baleada in hand, soon!
She will try to deny it but Erin has a mean Bachata.
