Late Night Packing
Despite having to leave the house at 5 AM to catch my 7:30 flight from New Orleans to Charlotte where I will then depart for Johannesburg, I'm finding it very difficult to sleep! As a matter of fact, it's nearly impossible. Not only am I running around gathering last minute things and having to deal with a Malerone crisis (big shout out and thanks to Uncle Ray), but I'm just so darn excited! Going to South Africa has always been a dream of mine. I love animals and aspire to be a vet, so this opportunity is the chance of a life time for me to study the behavior of the exotic animals that are only found in this region. Hopefully, through this blog, you can trek alongside me on this adventure (without the bugs and jet-lag). By the way, if you were wondering what "Suwubona" means in my title, it is Zulu for "hello." A better explanation of the trip will be posted soon, but as for now I've got to finish up my last minute packing! Happy reading!
