yup, I fly out 11 days from today at 11:50 pm

How excited am I?  And a bit anxious, to tell the truth.  I am so excited to see everyone, that’s the main thing right there (OK, and to eat so goooooood Mexican food and chocolate cake).  But everything will be different.  I am different.  You are different.  Places are different – there’s no more bridge across the river in my usual crossing in the Cities.  Things change.  Will I remember to stay on the right side of the road when driving instead of the left?  Will I be sad that I’m not in Kenya?  Will I be overwhelmed by all the stuff that surrounds me?  Will I?  Will I?

I don’t know.  It’s part of the journey and I’m fastening my seatbelt for the ride.

see you soon!
