|Today I leave for Africa. I wish I could just be beamed up and materialize next to some giraffes. But instead, I'm getting on a plane bound for LA at noon. Then I take a 16 HOUR flight to Dubai where I'll stay overnight then catch a 5 and a half hour flight to Tanzania. So Arizona time I think I finally arrive in Africa sometime in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. Wow. K. I'm going to stop thinking about that now. It's going to be TOTALLY worth it.
I don't know much at all about what I'm heading into but I'm excited for the adventure. I only know two of the people on my team so I'm really looking forward to building some great relationships along the way. I've never been to Africa but I have been to some other 3rd world countries so I'm expecting that it's going to rock my world. Of course I'm looking forward to sharing my experience with all of you on my blog but I don't know what kind of internet access I'll have in the next 10 days. Hang in there and stay tuned!
The team has a blog that we hope to collectively update along the way so definitely check it out at http://www.thirstrelief.org/tanzaniabenefit.
