If only I could learn the alphabet…. grr

That weekend that we went to Iskandar Kul, Emilia took us to a village that felt like something straight out of the pages of National Geographic.
They lived in stone houses without electricity or running water with a single donkey and a couple of goats. Yet despite their humble living conditions, they gladly offered up their homes to us and gave us delicious bowls of chakka to have with non. Their willingness to share what very little they have to these American children who have so much is such a testament to how hospitable the Tajik people are to their guests.

I’ve finally sent in my Visa Form and Medical Form! yay me~
I’m having the mail tracked and it’s been in DC since 7 this morning, which is fantastic! (I mean, it was due 2 days ago, but, I mean, who’s counting…)
I’m leaving in A MONTH AND TWO DAYS. I’m planning on having my schedule worked out for the week of the 10th. I graduate on the 11th and I have doctor’s appointments, college orientations, planned hangouts, and graduation parties up the butt that week. I need to sit down and find a time to plan everything out before it’s too late.
I guess by the end of next week I’ll make a concrete list of everything I’m bringing. Not one of those lists like, “3-4 pairs of pants BLAHBLAHBLAH” but like “I’m bringing my magenta T-shirt, my floral skirt” and just being super specific about it so that I can figure out exactly what I need and exactly what I need to buy.
I really don’t want to get myself too excited, but I’M SO EXCITED!!
