The grand departure has been postponed for a week or so. I was supposed to leave on the 14th, but now I must wait for my passport to come back from Mozambique with a work permit. Then it will be sent off again to Washington D.C. for the entry visa. Apparently Mozambique has one of the most complicated visa application processes. It could take a week or three.
But I’m not complaining. I have most of my bags ready to go, so now I can just take a few deep breaths, run some errands and visit with friends.
