Liberian Journal, Day 3

Liberian Journal, Day 3

[June 21st, 2011 : 1:25pm] Busy day today. Drank 3 bottles of water already (the big 1.5 liter). Very cool day, not sweating enough to merit drinking that much so now I’m peeing all the time. Today has been different from yesterday. Lots of kids today, since they are all inside due to the torrential rains we are experiencing. Lots of kids holding onto me at all times; I have a party of 10 or so with me whenever I…

Liberian Blog, Day 2

[June 20th, 2011, 11:45am] At Sinkor, we got in last night around 8pm. The drive here was a lot of fun!! 3 people in the back seat, the driver, and then two people in the passenger seat. Stephen, Diane, and I were in the back. Diane is not doing so well since her carry-on bag with her medications got taken away in Atlanta and are now lost. It was not too hot last night, muggy yes, but I liked it….

Here is the plane we were on for SOOOO LONG!!!…

[June 18th, 2011 @ 8:45 Washington Time] We are now on the place. My handwriting is good for now. We will see how it fares over time 🙂 Could be a game we play; I am not good without my lines. I realize now why a journal is so important to me. It helps me feel like I am talking/sharing with someone. Plus, I hope that someone can read my journal after the trip; you will get the nitty-gritty of…

Liberia here I come!

I am leaving for Liberia in a mere 9.75  hours! The count-down will end and I will be on that plane heading towards a dream! I will do my best to get updates as I can. But seeing as the internet cafes there are really slow…. well, we will see what happens!  I have everything packed and ready, other than my camera. I am going to place that in my pack right now. I do have some postcards to load…

Packing Phase 1

Packing Phase 1

Alright, so I started packing… mainly out of boredom! I have no luggage yet, so I am separating everything into two bins and stuff for my carry on. I don’t know what size of carry on I can have so I am just using my small duffel bag… hopefully I can use it. (I checked the website and I can use my duffel!!!). I believe I have everything I am going to need and more. Here is the first round…

Time at the airport

Time at the airport

Yesterday, ended up being a very lazy day but busyish day at the same time. My parents were fixing hamburgers! I, of course, ate a Boca burger. We stayed at my parent’s place for a couple hours. It was sunny, my parents were both in good moods, and I haven’t seen my dog in a couple weeks. It was fun to cuddle, love, and play with Korkie. I miss that stinker a ton. His face is just so adorable! We…

And I want to do things and stuff and be…

Walls of Postcards!

Walls of Postcards!

Today has been a downcast day, outside that is. 🙂 I’ve been pretty happy with  my day. I got the last little bit of Liberia stuff I need. Four boxes of gloves, band-aid boxes, some food, face wipes (can’t have enough I say), and some instant coffee I feel like it will be great to have while there… maybe a pick me up?? I have one more thing I need to get… aside from borrowing luggage… shoes. Geez. But I…
