On my way to Africa!

It's going to be a long plane trip. Fourteen hours with no stopover! What the hell? I figured I'd at least get to see some other country in the layover.

My uncle once went to Africa as part of his missionary work. He got out of Mormonism a few years later, but he never forgot his experience there. After hearing about his stories, I just had to sign up for this!

It's a little worrisome for me because I don't really know ANYONE here. There are a few others that I met once or twice, but it's not like I'm friends with them. Not close friends anyway. There are a few people who signed up for the thrill of things. There are some who genuinely want to do something good. Then there's me who signed up for both reasons. I'm looking forward to having this on my resume one day. Besides, we'll all be residing together for awhile. It'll give me time to get to know them all.

There's a guy on this trip too who's going, but he's not really a student. Heard him trade a guy his seat ticket for a beer. I don't know why he'd want to sit so far in the back of the plane. I'm not looking forward to it. But whatever.

There's another loner as well who seems to drift apart from the group. His name is Enjolras and I've seen him around campus from time to time. He's the kind of guy who attracts a lot of attention just from presence, but very few people approach him. He's friendly enough if quiet. Guessing he's like me and is just being shy.

Not much else to report. We're all just really excited about this! Won't be updating until we've landed.
