Today was an incredible day. For two reasons, first Alex graduated from USC with a Master’s degree!! He’s worked incredibly hard, and I am extremely proud of him. And second…we booked flights to GHANA!!! We’ll be leaving at the end of July and staying through the end of August. A short 5 weeks, but I couldn’t be more thrilled. I can’t begin to express how excited I am, and how thankful I am to be able to make this trip. These international volunteer ventures mean a great deal to me, in some sense, I live for them. Ever since my first day in Africa two years ago, I’ve had such an insatiable wanderlust, something I hope never leaves me. This time, I’m not sure if I’ll use an organization for volunteering, or just find something once in country. I’m still unsure about how I feel about foreign aid in general. And, it’s an “easy” country to travel too, especially for Africa, and I feel comfortable now on my own, but we’ll see. I’ve found some great conservation/agriculture sites that I’d love to participate in. Alex will be doing a medical internship, so he’s set. Regardless, I’m sure it will be an incredible experience and I absolutely cannot wait! Already counting the days-73.
