here is what has happened since i left you lovelies.
had one of those hazardous airport moments when everything seems like it is running out of time and it is just plain scary.
met people on the plane
people are nice. but it's still those awkard freshman year try to be friends with everyone and see who you actually could be friends with in 2 weeks.
so we begin our "final descent" (also apparently africa doesnt deserve good planes because the headphone jacks were missing and there was caution tape wrapped around one of the arm rests.) so we are descending and the turbulence is out of control. i have never experienced anything like it and it would have been so fun except i started feeling super nauseous and then i started sweating and my hair was so hot on my head i wanted to shave it off (i literally thought of pedro from napoleon dynamite) what ended up happening was i vommed into my halfway eaten bag of quaker mini rice cakes. i tried to do it really inconspicuously because ciee boy was 2 seats away from me. needless to say it was narsty. and ps who the heck gets plane sick SO LAME
the senegalese folk seem to be really nice so far. we are in the dorms for the week and there is this security guard named samba who is teaching us some wolof. super hard. its also almost sunrise i have no idea whats going on because we dont know if we should sleep or eat breakfast and then sleep I LITERALLY DID NOT SLEEP FOR 1 MINUTE ON THE PLANE . i am a walking zombie with an air of puke.
also WEIRD that we have wi-fi in the dorm because hope college doesnt even have that.
love you all
