The Countdown Begins!
I am soooo excited and nervous at the same time in this trip. As I was packing tonight reality set in that I am going out of the country and my destination is AFRICA! I have a tendency to overpack on trips so, I hope that I did not do that for this adventure. In class today we watched some videos regarding the killing that's happened in a church. I can only image what those people could have felt like. Coming to a church is supposed to be your safe place. But, during 1994 it was not. Knowing that I am religious myself, I think it is going to be very hard for me to go to these museums about the killings that happened. As I go to these museums though it will be hard to look at I am very excited to learn something new and appreciate our country in America. Another thing that I am excited about is gorilla trekking. This is a once in a lifetime experience and I cannot wait. Though I do not know what to expect the long hike is going to be well worth it. What a way to set off my summer with this trip! I'm soooo happy for this opportunity and once again just cannot wait!!
