We all woke up on Saturday knowing what was coming… it was time to say goodbye to San Salvador and go back to chilly Canada. We had one last breakfast at our designated table (which we are very protective of), and headed back to our rooms to finish packing up. It was weird seeing our dorm rooms completely empty, it was especially sad seeing Agatha put her amazing bug net away, it will be missed dearly. Once more, we jumped onto the blue truck one last time and drove to the airport, while reminiscing about our favourite parts of the trip. We arrived slightly early, so we had time to finally go to San Sal’s very own ‘Wendy’s’ and have ice cream- yum!
Following our short flight to Nassau, we had quite the layover, but the thought of a long, tiring wait was quickly forgotten when we spotted an actual Wendy’s at the airport. Burgers, fries, nuggets, and soda never tasted so good. The next couple of hours were spent playing a super fun, yet challenging game of charades… but seriously, how does one act out the words foraminifera, agile method and purple drank?! Good thing we could all basically read each others minds at this point. Later, Mishika introduced us to a quick-thinking card game called Market, which got very loud very quickly. On the other side of the table, a chess game was going on, what a scholarly way to pass time!
Eventually, it was finally time to board our flight and officially say goodbye to the Bahamas.
What a trip this has been, definitely one of the highlights of my university life, and one that I will not forget.
