Departure Approaches

Although a couple weeks ago it seemed like it was something very distant that would never happen, my departure suddenly is imminent.  I am scrambling to get everything done, packing, thank you notes for fundraising contributions, gifts for my host family, the list goes on but despite all of that I am very excited to be on my way.  I am of course very sad to be leaving everything I love here in Bham, my friends, my bicycle, my puppy, our lovely cool climate, but that sadness is overshadowed by the feeling that I am moving on to a experience that will be unlike anything I have done yet in my short life.  
Stay posted for my first post from Ghana, probably somewhere during the second week of August.
