Like Emily, I've been eating every thing I possibly can since I got home to Durham. I'm trying to get as sick of Ice Cream and Bruegger's Bagels as I can, so I won't miss them too much this summer.
In addition to eating my body weight, I've been going through a variety of emotions over the past couple weeks. At any given time I might be nervous, excited, stressed out, or any combination of the three. The most "rugged" trip I've ever taken was a week long camping trip to Ocracoke Island, so I think I'm in for a bit of a rude awakening in a few short days. However, once I get over the initial culture shock and hot shower withdrawal, I'm positive that this will be an AMAZING experience. Even though my childhood obsession with The Lion King started my love for Africa, I know there's a lot more to it than wild animals and beautiful scenery.
At this point, I don't have many interesting things to say. Hopefully my blogging will improve once I'm there. Until then, wish me (and my luggage) luck with getting to Uganda in one piece!
