Pre-Departure to Morocco: T minus 36 Hours-ish!!!

Ok, I DO realize I should be working right now (as in last minute paperwork and documentation), but I just returned home from two schools' parent-teacher interviews and I'm a little tired!! And it truly has been ages since I've blogged, and I felt the need to at least post a pre-departure entry. And then InshaaAllah, the entries will continue when I'm there :)

So yes, as most friends have ask, I am mostly all packed, as my final laundry load was completed today and will be added to my suitcase tomorrow evening! My carry-on backpack is ready to go, it just awaits my laptop and essential other technological pieces haha (such as my camera, cell phone, chargers, etc). It's also laden with my 'Disabled Village Children' book (thanks Joyce!!), my Rough Guide to Morocco, and Lululemon (oh yes!) comfy pants for the middle red-eye portion of my journey (i.e. Toronto to Paris). YEE-HAW!

I really hope to be able to hit up Internet Cafes in the evening so I can at least update my status or post short blog entries, although I doubt I'd be able to post pictures. Unless I take a USB stick with me, and transfer pictures from my laptop onto the stick and then upload onto Facebook via the public computer, hmmmm! It may just work!!

I am beyond excited for this opportunity, but I am starting to realize that it will be exhausting!! Not only due to jet-lag and change in weather, but also mentally and physically with the children and their families at the day centre. I get so attached with the kids I work with here, I can only imagine myself in Morocco. I am so looking forward to being integrated into Moroccan culture with my host family and the Projects Abroad Staff!! Not to mention seeing the beautiful architecture that composes Morocco, AND being able to walk into mosques and hear the Adhan (call to prayer) five times a day!! And maybe pick up a little Arabic while I'm at it!

Alrighty, I think it's time to wrap up and call it a night pretty soon. I first want to thank my amazingly supportive friends for their excitement and thoughts and prayers. InshaaAllah all those traveling and staying overseas have a safe and fulfilling journey, wherever we may be heading! Ameen :)
