It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to sit down for a few minutes and concentrate enough to post anything. I’m in New York right now, visiting with my sister and some friends before I leave for Casablanca on Sunday, August 29th. This turns out to be a nice buffer between Chicago, where I had some intense goodbyes, and Casablanca.

Morocco has been on my mind nonstop for the past year and a half, but in the last few weeks the closer I’ve gotten to my departure date, the less I’ve thought about my actual destination. Mostly I’ve been preoccupied with moving out of our apartment and spending some quality time with Karl, my family, and friends. As is probably necessary when planning a long stay overseas, I’d blocked out just how painful it would be to uproot and say goodbye to loved ones.

    It’s never really a goodbye as you’ll see them again relatively soon!
