As I mentioned earlier, I'm off to Africa on Friday. Will be leading a group of 10 people on a 10-day trip to my old stomping grounds. Of course I'm terribly excited but also apprehensive at being in charge of everything. Lots of details and a jam-packed itinerary. But it will be great to be back there, to visit all of the sights and to give lots of gifts to DFs family. :)
Here are some pics to give you an idea of where I'll be...
We'll be trekking up in this area for two days and nights. It's rugged and beautiful and totally fascinating. The villages we will visit are places I have been to before. I think the hikes are doable by everyone in the group. Hey, if I can do it, anyone can. I'm soooo not physically fit. lol. Of course, temperatures are in the 100s now, so we'll be taking it slow (and staying put during midday).
Crazy fun at the open market in the capital city. This was my view every day going to and from work. Total chaos. But it all works out in the end.
mmm, I hope I get to eat some of my favorite dishes. Groundnut stew, riz au gras, and good ol' rice and sauce. Fried plaintains too. Oh yeah.
So I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to blog between now and Friday, but I'll certainly have some stories to share in a week or so. K'an b'en sooni!
