Now that we are only a day away from our trip, we are all very excited! I woke up really early this morning and couldn't get back to sleep because I was thinking about how cool this trip is going to be. There's still lots to do since none of us has really packed. Now, I am sitting at work trying to stay focused when I really want to be home getting ready.
Yesterday, Kellie and I went to the used bookstore in town to grab some reading material for our 19 hours of flight time. We were able to download Wil's summer reading, Fahrenheit 451, to my iPod so that he can listen to it on the plane. Will be interesting to see how that works out for him.
This morning, I checked us into our flights and took my first malaria pill. We all decided to take the newer malaria medicine, Malarone, instead of the old school Lariam because my doctor told me that Lariam can cause wild nightmares in some people. Taking one pill a day instead of one a week is worth not going crazy.
This afternoon, I have to go to the bank to get cash. The travel agent told us to get nothing larger than a $50 and no bills older than 2000. Apparently, they have some counterfeiting issues in South Africa.
All in all, a busy but exciting day!
