My morning commute


The roads we take each morning on our way to clinic are incredibly beautiful. We pass by Mt. Mulange every Friday and the cloud hanging over it this past Friday reminded me of this mountain. There are signs everywhere proposing this mountain to be added to the list of World Heritage Sites. Usually, we are one of the only cars on the road once we get outside of the city, with bicycles littering the road each morning carrying everything from chickens to produce, building supplies, and passengers. I do a lot of reflecting on these long morning drives, getting ready for the day, drinking in my surroundings, and sometimes just mediating on how much I love my life.
