I am a very linear person. I like to know where I am going, how long it will take me to get there and all the steps in between. This wait has surely been a learning experience for me. Between my 50th birthday in Granby and June 2008 in Africa there are so many steps. And the worst part is I don’t know half of them.
What language will I speak? I would love to begin learning that language or at least listening to it!
What will I need what will i want and how much can i take with me. How much can i purchase there?
How will I communicate with people back home? The world IS smaller but only if you have internet access where you are living. I won’t own a cell. Too expensive.
I feel like I am doing a waltz when I want to be jitterbugging!
