Mountain Tea Picking

The early morning air of July 7 in Mikro Papingo, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was at that point the earliest I had been up and moving in Papingo – around 5am. I was at that time unsure of where and how I fit in with this apprentice company or with anything in Papingo. I had been absolutely in awe of everything around me since arriving, and I was extremely grateful to be on this journey; however, I hadn’t quite found a groove or felt like myself. The mountain tea hike changed that for me.

It made me feel more in tune with myself and my relationship to everything around me. I will never forget the cool breeze before the sun rose above the mountain. I will never forget the smell of the mountain tea and the wildflowers growing along the path. I will never forget the friends I was able to share the hike with, the new friends I made that day. I will never forget this company and this journey I am blessed to be a part of.
