Leaving on a Jet Plane

29 05 2011

So… in about 4 1/2 hours I’ll be leaving on a jet plane for Tanzania. I figured I’d make this now because I’m guessing internet access in Africa is a little spotty. So for those who care (no one?) I’m putting my itinerary up, mainly because I don’t have anything else to write yet. The total trip (flights + layovers) is a whopping 34 hours. This I am not pleased about. However, fun times with Michelle in DC for half a day! WOO.

Also, as I’m writing this, Africa VIP by Caspa & Rusko is on in the background. Thought it was fitting…
