(Oops, I wrote this a few days ago, and I'm currently in Atlanta as I post :)
Tomorrow (well, technically early Monday morning), I leave for Atlanta. I have a business trip that will find me in Atlanta and Athens, Georgia for the next 8 days. Even though I've only been back in Senegal for a little over two weeks, I am still looking forward to spending some time on American soil... shopping, eating, and learning about poultry science (woo hoo). I'm hoping to make up for my lack of shopping around Christmas... I really, really need to update my wardrobe. I am ready to give everything away and start at 0! I also plan to stock up on things for MIA (My Imaginary Apartment), like a comforter for my new duvet cover, sheets, pillows, printed pictures..... what I don't find I'll order online and have my mom bring with her when she visits February 16 (soooo soon!).
Last year I travelled to Cape Verde, San Diego/LA, Cameroon (twice), Ivory Coast (twice), Burkina Faso, NYC, and North Dakota, not including my trips home to Boston and DC, and my trips home to Senegal, of course :) By the end of April I will have travelled to Atlanta, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Uganda, and Egypt.
Alright, present-day Kim is signing off to rally the troops for dinner. Adios!
