Day 2

Day 2

No real Internet but I did get the international plan so I can use my phone on a limited basis. I’ll upload my notes when get back. For now, here’s the picture of the day.
Guess what’s on the menu for this family!

Well, I actually found out that this guy isn’t going to eat this chicken, they are fighting chickens! Before we left, he showed us.

The dirt path in front of this house was like a people highway the entire time we visited. We even had a crowd gather just to watch us. There were plants and crops growing everywhere around the houses. Vehind this house was a banana tree crop.

Trip Day!

Trip Day!

It’s trip day! Wasn’t too sure it would happen but tropical storm Chantal weakened and doesn’t seem to be a problem now. All packed and under weight! The suitcase, not me.

How do I feel? Ready to go, calm, part of a bigger plan. The agenda has been created by a much higher authority. The most organized person on Earth could not have made these arrangements work out so smoothly! It may not exactly be a vacation, but it will be fun!

One Day Pre-trip

One Day Pre-trip

Well, there’s one more day before I head to Haiti and of course, it will be raining because of the tropical storm! Hopefully that doesn’t mess up the schedule.

I think I have everything packed. Luckily, I get to take three carry on bags and the checked bag can weigh up to 70 lbs. Now I can actually take more food! We get one meal at dinner and the rest are on us! Luckily I like rice and tortillas, granola bars, beef jerky, and even vienna sausages. (Yes, I do. I used to gross out my older sister when I ate them!) The checked bag has a variety of “stuff”. Flip flops, a few spirals, coloring books, crayons, nail polish, hot wheels, and some things I don’t remember. I’m carrying my stuff in the camping back pack!

Tomorrow I will be checking the list again and weighing the suitcase again, just to be safe! I’ll have to decide things like tennis shoes or no tennis shoes? Can you pack a razor in a carry on? Will the small jar of jelly survive the suitcase trip? Aaaaa, what if the suitcase gets lost!? That’s where I put my Oreos!

I lied…..

I lied…..

Remember when I said I was going to keep the same WordPress theme for a while? Define a while. I did keep the theme but the black background was driving me nuts so now I have navy. At least I think it is. Darn that red, green color blind gene!

Clouds are encouraging. Sometimes they mean trouble but they eventually come back to the poofy, friendly look .
