I enjoyed a Kwanza celebration at the Universal Unitarian church in Long Beach with Laurie Mutalipassi before heading back to Santa Monica to finally think about getting ready for my next journey.

I am going on a 110 day voyage around the world with University of Virginia sponsored Semester at Sea. I have wanted to do this since I was in high school and it was attached to Chapman College in Orange. Breanne, my roommate in Tanzania, had gone and encouraged me to go as a Lifelong Learner. This category is people over 40 who audit the classes (no tests or grades!) but enjoy the journey along with the regular undergraduates.
I have started packing but now I am supposed to take half the stuff out! I have been living basically out of one suitcase for the past year and a half while I was in Africa and Panama, but I need a whole other suitcase for cold weather clothes! I hate being cold! I leave for San Diego tomorrow and this is where I am:
