This time next week I will be en-route to Logan Airport. I've got my passport and my shots. I've taken my typhoid medicine and picked up my Cipro and my malaria prescriptions from the pharmacy. I've got 2 bags of donations packed and 2 more ready to pack.
I haven't thought too much about what I am bringing for myself- clothes or personal stuff. But I'm ok with that. I can be fine with the bare minimum.
There is a woman who has been very generous and helpful in preparing for this trip, and she's asked me to bring a laptop for her. I feel it's the least I can do. With great thanks to a stranger (who would like to be anonymous), I have a laptop for Dereje. And I have my own laptop which I would like to bring so that I can dump photos and blog occasionally. How will I bring 3 laptops with me?
And then, of course, there is the difference between ready and "ready."
