I've been back less than 18 hours in Kinshasa (including sleeping hours) and I'm asked to come in to the office and work.

This really sucks. I have so much to do before I leave:
1.Pack my belongings
2.Make up my shipment
3.Plan my trip back
4.Work on Mission Trip report
5.Finish Handover notes
7.Buy last souvernirs
8.Clean up my files at the office
9.Print out all important emails in my Outlook

bummer, bummer, bummer.

Just keep your mind focused on the "light at the end of the tunnel" (i.e. you're homeward bound) and perhaps things will take on a new outlook. Or maybe not.
Either way freedom is just around the corner!

Sounds like you are pretty busy...hope you get it all done in time!

When are you leaving Kin? where will you be headed?

Anyway, if you get back to the US on the East coast, know that I'm stuck in MTL for another 6 weeks !

(It would be so wonderful to see you again !)

Much love,

Cheer up! We'll soon be treating you to a Starbucks :)
As long as you're organized about what you need to do, I'm sure you'll manage great!

Not only Starbucks, but CVS, Giant, Barnes & Noble, Gap, Old Navy, Hecht's, Macy's, Hamburger Hamlet and Dunkin' Donuts... Now, why do I feel so nostalgic?

From our Dad, from Abidjan where he's been attending the disarmement talks...

Ooouch. It looks like they're trying to make your last few weeks as brutal as possible. Good riddance!
I can not WAIT until you're home. Yay Jazz Fest!

I am so excited that you are going to be (relatively) near by soon! You have to come visit me in the absolute insanity that is suburban North Carolina. Oh, and I have presents from India for you!
