Tomorrow I leave for Africa again. After a quick overnight in Johannesburg, I am on to Zambia for a week, Western Kenya for a week, and finally Nairobi for a week. Even though I have been back in America for just over three weeks, it seems like it was just yesterday that I was unpacking my bags. I honestly wish I had a few more nights to sleep in my wonderfully comfortable bed with my perfect down pillow, a couple more evenings to cook food from scratch in my kitchen, and more time to finish the (thick, hardback) book that I am in the middle of right now that will not fit into my suitcase.
At the same time, I cannot wait to lock my little house up tomorrow and begin to live my life out of a suitcase again. Because, while I do, I spend time with some amazing people doing amazing things; I am constantly blessed by being in their presence. While I travel, I will be telling stories through twitter and blogs, words and photos - stories of water, AIDS, hope, resilience, and of African heroes. I invite you to join join the journey as I share it online in the coming weeks. I hope you too will be blessed by our African neighbors by sharing in this journey.
