Three Days to Departure

Packing and panicking!

sunny -9 °C

So it's just a few days until I leave and I'm packing up my own stuff as well as things to take as gifts and donations for the NGO with whom I'll be working and the local orphanage. My co-workers have generously donated some toys and books for the orphanage. I picked up some soccer balls and skipping ropes as well as notebooks, pencils, crayons, etc. Also trying to clean up a couple of laptops to take as well.

Here's hoping I have everything I need and that I don't forget some vital document! I'm immunized for diptheria, tetanus, polio, Hep A and B, typhoid, cholera and yellow fever. Malaria medication is packed, as well as lots of sunscreen and a big hat. Visas have been obtained for Cameroon and India; I'll get visas for Kenya and Tanzania at the border.

I think I have things mostly under control but still have moments of anxiety. It will all become more real when I step off the plane in Douala to 30 degrees and 90+% humidity. I'll try to go skating on the river at least once more before I go.
