Stories from Kenya - March 11th
Every day or so I'm going to try and share some stuff from a day, or part of a day, in Kenya. I miss it so much and can't wait to share some stories from my amazing experiences with you. I will go through my journal and pictures and I hope that it also helps reminds me of the little things I've forgotten about!
Everybody in our group got together at 4am and loaded into the bus. I gave out bandanas that I had made with fabric a friend had given me from Kenya. It was exciting to be sitting on the bus with everyone and then to start driving to the airport, but it still didn't feel like it was really happening. I had worked so hard to get there and I was actually leaving!
When we got to the airport we waited there for a bit before flying off to Calgary. I was pretty excited when it was time to get on the plane but still, it didn't feel like this was all actually real! As we waited for the plane to take off, I watched the sun going up into the sky as I tried to convince myself that I was really going to Africa. As the plane took off, I couldn't fight sleep any longer... I had wanted to watch a movie but could not stay awake! I woke up just before we landed in Calgary.
