Ready or not, it’s time to go to Haiti!
Physically, I’m ready. Bags are packed, malaria pills are ingested, and I have carefully weighed and repacked my two bags full of donations half a dozen times to make sure I’m at 50 lbs (I’m like a few ounces off).
Mentally, aside from crafting a packing list, I’m not ready. It’s been a whirlwind of a semester (I still talk in school terms), and up until yesterday I haven’t given it a seconds’ notice that I will be with a group of people I don’t know or doing hard manual labor or away from Internet or entering into what some call a fourth world country. I am getting giddy just thinking about the Internet part; it will be so nice to be disconnected for a week.
Not sure what to expect, but I will catch you all on the flipside! :)
