And so it (I) goes...

I have been away from my post..and I promise that once I arrive there will be much more to say about Togo then about preparing and packing for a crazy adventure in the Peace Corps. I quit my job a week ago, sent my belongings home to mom, said my goodbyes, packed items in a hundred little ziplocs and weighed myself with my bags....

I know have myself...my backpack , a duffel and a messenger bag strapped to go to Togo. I leave tomorrow on a 9am flight to Dc where I will be meeting all the other emotionally and physically stressed volunteers like I. I'm sure we'll all be sititng there thinking "what the hell have I done"

I'll soon know as I arrive in Togo on Sat evening to the heavy air and strange smells.

I'm going to miss Chicago, and everyone and everything in it...it's a great city and I'm sure I'll remember that while I'm away...but you only live once they say....and I have a whole lot of livin' to do ....

Now off to the DQ for some last bits of frozen goodness :)

I'll be looking for you on google earth. Go outside and wave your hands every now and then, maybe we'll see you...

And thanks for the parting gift. It's a new favorite.
