Leaving the Peace Camp & returning back Home!

Today is our last day. Everyone started to leave already. It is very hard for us to say goodbye since we just spent the best 10 days of our lives and now we just have to go back to school, to college, to our lives. Many of us were crying and boys were trying to hide their tears but just couldn't since it was a very emotional moment for all of us. Ironically, there was a strike at the airport and many of the people who were flying back had to wait for so many hours and poor Silje she had to go back to the hotel and fly the next day. I guess it was kind of exciting since we got to stay with each other a few more hours but we still wanted to go home. We all missed our family, friends...But each one of us wanted to just take all the other 52 students with him back home in his suitcase. It was a very emotional and moving day. Saying goodbye was one of the hardest things we had to do throughout the whole camp and I would say it was the hardest thing to say. But for us this is only the beginning. It is the beginning of a new chapter in our lives. Randa, Cairo, Egypt
