Thank You, San Pedro
I must be honest; I haven't been looking forward to writing this article. I knew the day of composing my final Reef Brief was quickly approaching, but I simply chose not to think about it. But now the time has come and, after reflecting upon my experience in San Pedro, I realize what a gift these two years have truly been.
Throughout the past two years living and working as a Peace Corps volunteer in San Pedro, the community has been incredibly warm and gracious in opening themselves up to me. I have always thought that the town I grew up in California was close-knit, but after a few days here, I realized that San Pedro would teach me a thing or two about what it truly means to be a community. I will genuinely miss walking down the street every day recognizing, acknowledging and greeting so many different faces. And I will forever treasure the daily interactions and conversations I have had with community members_meetings that often led to fascinating discussions about people, morals and politics.
I must take this opportunity to thank some of those who have made my experience so rich and positive. Most importantly, Mito and Catherine Paz, who have taught me what it truly means to be committed to a cause such as Green Reef. Other people and organizations that need to be recognized include the Green Reef Board of Directors, Dan, Eileen, and Felix of The San Pedro Sun, the San Pedro Town Council, all the guys at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, the San Pedro Tour Guide Association, Amigos del Mar, Seaduced Tours, Coral Beach Dive Shop, Aquarius Dive Shop, Susana and Norman Eiley, Fiona Elliott, Eddie Halliday and many, many more.
Thank you, San Pedro. I will miss this town and its people in more ways than I can mention.
