A little more than 24 hours and I'll be on my way! 24 hours after that and I'll be in Haiti! I can't believe it's finally here! After 6 hectic weeks of preparation, my journey is going to begin!
I have a huge backpack (thanks to Sara) stuffed to the gills. I have found many pockets to hide peanut butter packets and crackers in; I have a travel pillow (again, thanks Sara) water bottle, umbrella all strapped in; I have my towel, mosquito net and sheet stuffed in; in other words...I am ready! Let 's get this show on the road!
I'm a little concerned with the tropical storms that don't want to let up. Matthew hit the tropics pretty hard last week and the resulting rain caused havoc in Haiti, where 5 people died. The island is not ready for such powerful storms and the results are devastating. As long as I can get there, I am ready for anything. My worst fear is getting stuck in Miami and shortening the time I have in Haiti. Pray for clear skies!
I'm loading up my ipod with new tunes as we speak. I'm charging up the camera battery. Passport is packed---off I go!
