Up bright and early to leave the hotel that has become my home for the past month. We say goodbye to all the wonderful and friendly staff, who have made our stay such an enjoyable one. The journey back to Hargeisa is beautiful, with the feeling of space all around us. Once back in Hargeisa, I meet with Mary-Jo, my great colleague and friend, and also nurse co-lead for the mental health
group. It is such a great joy to see her here finally, as we have never yet been in Somaliland at the same time. She is leaving tomorrow, though we both feel lucky for having had the opportunity to spend at least a night together. We have a lovely dinner with the THET team and other friends.
