So I cannot believe I only have one week left until I leave for Tanzania! I'll be gone from June 21st to August 23rd! The past month and a half have flown by as usual and now is the time I really have to make sure I have everything ready for the trip. It's crazy thinking when I get back I only have four days to prepare for my trip back to New Orleans and yet another semester begins! I booked my flight last week ($120 JetBlue- awesome deal!) after finalizing that I won't be taking my car back to school next semester. It's a bummer but it's just too expensive with keeping it safe on campus, gas prices, and random mishaps. Regardless I know next semester will be great! Anyways, I finally got my Malarone and Cipro prescriptions as well as the passport photos necessary to receive the Tanzanian residency permit to work in the hospital. I'm also excited that at least 7 other EWH participants will be on my flight from Amsterdam to Tanzania so it is comforting to know that I'll be with my fellow maroon t-shirts arriving! I think all I need to do now is finalize my packing list and maybe get one nicer outfit for working in the hospital since it's common to see everyone nicely dressed in khakis/button ups. Last week I visited Colin one last time for the year which was really fun. While he was working in the classroom I decided to draw the picture of the ostrich from safari last year that I had posted earlier and it was pretty fun! Props again to Mr. Losi for drawing class in high school :D In the slideshow below you can see my drawing and pictures from Webb and the Gatsby party they have every year including a lobster dinner and jazz music. I will probably post one last time in the U.S. then hopefully be blogging a bunch in Tanzania.
