At the conference I attended in Chiang Mai a few weeks ago, we played an ice-breaker game to start off, as we introduced ourselves. We were supposed to share something about ourselves that was either a truth or a lie. One girl shared that when she was homesick, she bought pets. Not just one but many pets. She said it was true! After her DTS she stayed in Thailand for several months afterwards, staying on the floor of a church. Soon after she started staying there, she acquired a bunny, and some fish to keep her company.
F and I then wondered what we would do when we get homesick… I’ll let you know if we too acquire a number of pets. 🙂
