still in the beautiful Boulder, Colorado where light, dry and sparkly snow is piling up. just came back from chilling with/accidentally running into high school peoples at southern sun pub. Luckily, DIAis familiar with my namesake and with a bit of luck all flights will be on time tomorrow.
itinerary: christmas eve Denver - NYC - DC - Rome - Addis Ababa - Lubumbashi boxing day. fingers crossed a dude named Tshishiku will pick me up from the airport.
packing up a lil duffel and backpack: passport, photocopies of passport, rain stuff, alot of pills, dubai phone (same one, alex!), crosswords, french/kiswahili dictionaries, emergency whistle (unnecessary, dad), antimosquito things, pens/gifts for academics, cameras (tentative), heavily edited and but untouched thesis drafts, some clothes n shizz etc etc.
roger that, over and out.
