Ok, so I am starting this blog because I am going to be living in Mozambique for the Summer and my family and friends wanted to know what was going on. I guess they all think that I am terrible at writing and so they are hoping that if I just have to write one time I will at least do that. I guess we'll find out! So I have just finished buying everything and all I can say is shopping at Cabela's for dutch oven type clothes/shoes and buying things such as bug repellent, malaria pills, and flash lights is about as much fun as walking on glass. I mean shopping at Nordstrom's that is fun! Buying a brand new pair of shoes that go perfect with that perfect pair of jeans... HEAVEN!! Going from hunting store to hunting store then making a quick stop at wall mart isn't my idea of a fun day out. Maybe that is why I am going to Africa to learn to love dutch oven type living. Maybe when I get home I will want to just ride a bike and live on berries and nuts while wearing the latest pair of chacos. I really hope not but, I am going to keep all of my options open. I am however, excited to go! The getting ready part: buying, packing, and waiting around part is always hard but, once I'm there I always love it! Anyways... I am off to try and fit all that I have into a back packing backpack that I have never used and never thought I would have to use unless of course there was some type of natural disaster! :) Please feel free to email me or post anything while I am gone! I would love to hear from you and despite what others may say I really will do my best to get back to you!
