Wait, How Many Days?

So apparently I'm leaving in 4 days...I don't really know where the past 6+ months have gone but I'm almost there. I was planning on posting more this past month but I had this nightmare about someone reading my blog and stalking me. I know it was just a dream, but a lot of my dreams come true so I was just being careful.

As far as news in Burkina Faso these days, it's all soccer (football) news because of the African Cup of Nations tournament coming up in mid-January. Burkina did really well last year so they're hoping to do well again this year. It will be held in Equatorial Guinea.
I have everything I need for the trip, and now all I have to do is show up at the airport. I'm almost done packing, I have all my medicine, I have all my travel information printed out and in my binder, I started my travel journaling (Thanks for the journal Rachel!). I am still looking for a good book to take on the plane with me, any suggestions? Preferably books you have a copy of. Also does anyone at home have a pair of noise reducing headphones I could borrow? I want a pair but I don't have $200 to drop on them.

Also, for each of my big trips, I like to come up with a quote that sort of defines where I want the trip to go. I haven't decided for sure yet, but I'm loving this one:

"It is in all of us to defy expectations, to go into the world and be brave, and to want, to need, to hunger for adventures, to embrace change and chance and risk, so that we may breathe and know what it is to be free."

What do you think?

I'm also still trying to figure out what I want to do with my journaling, if I want to type it up as I go along writing it or if I want to upload the pages or if I want to just include certain parts. Any suggestions?

Ok, well that's all for now folks!!
