things will never be the same

they made my heart double in size, my perspective on life expand and grow, feel immensely loved, laugh louder than I've ever had, ask questions that challenged my understanding and relentlessly seek out the answers, jump up and sing, realize how much I thought I knew and how little I actually know, and sincerely want to be a better person.

I still can't quite explain it. what Tanzania means to me now. all I am certain of is that things will never be the same. 

I will never be the same.
