Almost there! And I must say I'm a little bit proud of myself for having posted not one, but TWO entries on my South Africa blog before I've even made it to the airport. Maybe this blogging thing *is* my jam.
Philadelphia has been great, and much less intense than I was expecting. We only got one shot this morning, but I think we have a few more coming in South Africa. We did end up doing a couple icebreakers, but no name games. Hopefully we can do some more in South Africa, but, if not, I'll just have to find some people to do some trust falls and human knots with me.
Other than that, we talked a little about our expectations and went through some general things about health and safety and the volunteer experience, but nothing specific to South Africa. We'll just have to wait a little longer for that information, I guess.
I'll try to take some good pictures when I get there. I know pictures of Johnny with my luggage at the Pasco Airport will entice some of my 5 to 10 readers, but maybe I'll pull in a few more with some sub-Saharan scenery shots. If not, I'll just post royalty free pictures of elephants and lions that I find online and claim them as my own. Either way, stay tuned to my blog - you're in for a treat :)
