Time to Go10 March 2009

Hard to believe that it's already departure time. Two months ago I couldn't tell Tanzania from Ghana from South Africa. I've so much time reading and learning about Africa, a place I never fathomed I would ever visit on my own, let alone for work.

This afternoon I embark on 25 hours of travel, flying overnight from O'Hare to London Heathrow (9 hours), then to Nairobi (9 hours), then to Mombasa (1 hour). Last time I headed overseas I traveled in style. This time, I'm with the cattle in economy.

A friend passed this along as a going-away present. I leave you to bask in its awesomeness.
