Hard to say "good-bye"

It's the thing i hate, to say good-bye to many good friends just after you found them and became good friends. it happened in Turkey, it happened in Singapore, it is happening here in Taiwan. You come to a place totally new to you, but after a while you leave this place with so many good friends and many nice memories. For some time you want to stay, but sometimes it is beyond our control. But I believe in one thing, that we leave the place and people we love to meet new people and new places that we are going to love. It's worth it. and every good thing is short, and should be short. Important thing is to keep these friends, to keep this warm feeling. By time some will be forgotten, some will become closer, sort of filtration over time. But world is getting smaller, and means of communication are growing, so more possible that our ways will be crossed again.

Today we are just trainees, or fresh graduates, or students. But tomorrow we will be the buisness owners, politicians, scientists, etc., leaders in our society. Today we are just friends, tomorrow we will be professional partners besides that. This AIESEC friendship network is very important for me, it's of highest value.

For all friends, thanks for great farewell party, for your nicest wishes, posts, gifts, for your warmth. I didn't think that this time I will feel sad to leave, but you guys made me sad. Truly Taiwan and taiwanese people touch the heart of any guest in their country, any guest that understands them.

One good friend told me that it's easier to leave the place alone and by not looking back. It's hard to say "good bye", so I'll just say "see you again somewhere sometime soon".

p.s.: I'll post photos from this evening later. Sooo busy these last days.
