“At last.”

I’m here. In Africa. Actually in Africa. Seriously – Africa. I’m not sure I actually believe it, and I’m seeing it.

I made it safe. I’m so exhausted I can barely stand it. I can’t keep my eyes open, and I’ve never seen such hideous, dark dark dark circles under ANYONE’s eyes before. It’s bad news. I also haven’t showered since the day I left, and my body has no idea when that was.

It’s gorgeous here.

Oh, I also found out I WILL have internet in my room. Yay.
