The Ghana Chronicles: 14

July 27, 2000

Dear Journal,

This is my last night in Africa.

I can’t believe a month has gone by and it’s time for me to return home.

British Airways just had a crash over France- I’m so nervous about the plane ride over.  I can just see it now.  We finally get finished and we crash on our way back home.

How much would that suck?

Well, at least if I died, I would’ve fulfilled my lifelong dream of going to Africa.

That in itself is just awesome.

Megan and I went back to the orphanage today to make one last visit with the kids.  It was awesome.  I can see all their faces so clearly right now- I hope I never forget them.

I hope I never ever forget this trip.  It has been the most rewarding experience ever.  The most challenging thing but it taught me more about myself than I would’ve ever dreamed of!  I feel so much happier and confident to do anything.

Love,

Lauren
