Still in Atlanta, waiting for my passport to return to me. It made it back from Mozambique yesterday, and now it’s off on another adventure to Washington D.C. for my entry visa. I’m just so proud of it, traveling all around the world by itself.
I had a really, really lovely going away shin-dig on Saturday. Elizabeth came in all the way from Memphis and Merritt came in for one day from Portland, Oregon (not to down-play the importance of those who didn’t trek in). Not only was it lovely to have some of the best people in my life gathered together, but it was all by romantic candle light!
We’ve had crazy stormy weather in Georgia, and the power went out about an hour into the party. Luckily we had plenty of tea lights and good conversation. Plus, I think it was excellent training for Africa.
As for the ever mysterious departure date – looks like it should be in the next week or so.
