I leave tomorrow morning for Ghana. I can't believe how quickly my break flew by. January 8th seemed like so long ago when I first started counting down and now, all of the sudden it's here! Somehow everything worked out though. My contacts made it on time. Malaria meds were granted to me by insurance. My camera charger was found. The elections went smoothly in Ghana. There were a lot of things I was worried about, but now that it's time to go, everything seems to have worked out.
Tomorrow will be a long day in the car, followed by an even longer time on planes and in airports. I figure if Clara and I still like each other after all that time together, then we will survive anything Africa throws at us. :) I will do my best to let you all know as soon as I arrive in Ghana safely. Just think, the next time I post to this, I will probably be 6,102 miles away!
