Besides thank you's from Ani Gyalmo and the new Director, Massimo, Ichkaa read a poem he wrote about me. I was presented with a Certificate of thanks from Lama Zopa Rinpoche, a staff photo from Nergwee, but the highlight of the evening was a brand new del (coat). The staff and a few others chipped and Oyunbaatar's wife made it. It was perfect. And Ichkaa's family gave me a belt to go with it.
The cafe fed us a lot of sandwiches, fruit, sushi, candy and of course, cake. I will sure miss everyone here.
Some of the staff
Also some students and staff children
Complete in my new del and belt
And even the Ani's came from the nunnery
