Wamena: The Intro

What a week! I have been both challenged and blessed enormously by our time in Wamena. The chance to glimpse into the future and see what it will be like to one day live and work in the Baliem Valley was very good to experience. We returned to Sentani with a clearer vision of exactly why we are learning the language and culture and are looking forward to starting class again in the next few days.

I journalled a lot this week, sorting through emotions in the midst of illness and the realisation of the tremendous changes that will occur when we move. Over the next few days I'll share a 4 part journal about our time in Wamena. But before we tackle everything that went on under the surface, here are some pictures!
