Currently sitting in an airport in Johannesburg, South Africa, after buying 75mb of internet for $5 waiting for our red eye flight to dar es salaam tanzania. We leave at 11:45, arrive at 3:45, transfer to a plane for Moshi, Tanzania at 7:45 and then check into a hotel for a day before attempting a climb on Mt Kilimanjaro. I have to admit, I'm not feeling so great. After being away from home for going on 3 or 4 weeks, I'm feeling tired, sick, and (let's be real here) constipated. Oh well. What's a girl in the Peace Corps who lives in the middle of the most remote area in the world to do? Going to attempt a nap on the airport benches snuggled in my 3-season sleeping bag and try to pass time as pleasantly as possible. On the upside, climbing Mt Kilimanjaro? Great excuse to spend $15 on peanut mnm's, nut mix, and chocolate covered sunflower seeds.
