As we leave in a week or so, I am left waiting at home doing some work and a lot of nothing. I am ready and excited to leave, but I am going to miss being here in Lake Tahoe. As I am sure I will make some friends on the trip, I will miss my friends from back home and I am positive I will be happy to be back when we return from part one of our trip in January.
I am looking forward most to South Africa and meeting my mom’s old friends. Partially because they have a kid in between Ben’s and my age. He promised that if we taught him baseball, he’ll teach us cricket. Maybe we can throw a football, rugby trade in there. I am also looking forward to South Africa because of where we are going. We are going to Kruger National Park, which is world famous for its wildlife; Victoria Falls, which is one of the seven natural wonders of the world; and The Cape of Good Hope, which is the southernmost point of the country and happens to be the home of some penguins.
