Last Day

Today is day 10 and the last day of the World Scout Jamboree 2011. This morning we have a bit of free time, then we spend the afternoon packing up. The closing ceremony will be followed by a dance party until 1am in the morning. After that, we will load up our gear and leave at 7am the next morning.

The end is bittersweet, but at least we got another rain free day to end with. If all goes well, we will sleep under the stars tonight, as if giving one final farewell to this land we called home for 12 days.

Last night was spent with friends, trying not to think about the final goodbye today. Everyone is getting eachother's names for Facebook, and there is lots of shirt signing occuring.

This has been amazing, and as much as we don't want it to end, we are all looking forward to getting home. We have lots of pictures, videos and stories, so hopefully this experience will live on in them.

Its a beautiful day and there is lots to do, so I will see ya back in Canada!
