The Countdown

It's a week until I land in Dakar.

I've had a surprising lack of anxiety about going abroad for 4+ months. I guess that's what going abroad often does for you. I'm trying to get the most out of my last few weeks in America by:
  • playing in the snow
  • eating like there's no tomorrow
  • spending time with friend and family
  • using lots of electricity and internet
  • taking long, super-hot showers
Some things that I haven't a clue about that will hit me right away on my trip:
  • Wolof, the language most widely spoken in Senegal, of which I don't know a word
  • how well I can communicate in French
  • when I'll get a chance to get a Senegalese SIM card
  • the new and improved TSA guidelines (joy)
